Who are we?

Thanks for wondering who we are!

We are... a few people with a passion for hammocks & tarps. We don't go in for cliche business talk like 'excellent range of products', 'human body sleeping support system' and we don't call Father Christmas the annual gift distributor either - it's completely irrelevant.  We try to tell it like it is.  Our hammocks, tarps & everything else we make may well be some of the best you'll come across. It would be ridiculous for anyone to claim their gear is the best, it's a purely personal point of view of course.

We are not... greedy profiteers, churning out cheap items with big price tags on from Chinese factories, feeding off the misery of the people who work there and damaging their health & lives.

Not greedy!

We employ a few people to make our items, and they work at their own speed and earn at least 3x what they would doing the same work in a factory.  Nice work if you can get it. Then we sell everything at as low prices as we can - as long as we can still afford to eat.

No factories!

Buyers of our gear have said that it is underpriced. This can of course trick people into thinking that items that cost more must be better. Well it's not necessarily the case - it is still possible to get good stuff at a good price. We just want people to get out there and have a good time in our kit - so we make it as accessible as we can.

We design everything ourselves & sometimes buyers give us their own ideas and we add them in. When we're not too busy we can make custom hammocks and tarps - but really, it's not often so best not get your hopes up until we recruit another top tailor (our head tailor really is a genius and he's the only one who does the custom work).

If you have any ideas for items or new features you'd like to see included, why not let us know and we'll see if we can do it.

But Really...

But what about us really? Well, we like hammock camping and just lying in a hammock in the garden on a sunny day. There seems to be a link between enjoying camping and the respect and appreciation of nature. So many people spend all day looking at a computer screen, only seeing trees through windows or in pictures on the screen.  There must be an instinctive need to just 'be' in a natural environment; away from plastic, metal & machine-made straight-edged surfaces, to escape the radiation from devices & wifi - to breathe natural air. Who doesn't want that?

Preppers

We're not full-on
preppers but we're pretty much ready with bugout bags & some essentials stashed away if ever the SHTF. Like if the USA were to plunge the world into war (well, who else would do it?), or if the dollar crashes (that's when, not if). If there's a temporary reset while the world reboots, the preppers would be casually hiding out in the forests in hammocks & tents. We'll be joining them going in the opposite direction to all the people heading down to Tescos to beat each other to death over a tin of beans.

Clean Camping

We like our forests clean and we prefer streams & rivers in the unpolluted condition - is that too much to ask? We don't want to get all political but it has to be said that forests, streams, rivers & the air in the UK are under threat from serious long-term
contamination. The UK government is all in favour of fracking most of the country. This has caused enormous problems in the US and Australia, rendering water sources toxic, making people ill and killing livestock & pets (and if they drill anywhere near you, your property will plummet in value). The UK is far more densely populated than the US & Oz, so the effects will be far worse and it worries us. We don't want to have to avoid natural water sources when camping because they have hundreds of toxic chemicals in them. Don't trust the government or their friends, the fracking companies, who will keep lying that it's safe and harmless - do your own research.
