Meet the Team

Purchasing FSO products directly supports our continued efforts to grow sustainable economic opportunities in small villages across Northern Thailand. Each meticulously handcrafted hammock and bag is made in the very home of our team of seamstresses where they earn a fair living wage, with no set working hours, and the ability to better meet familial and community needs from home.

We operate in small garment manufacturing villages where seamstresses generally work in factories that recognize the minimum wage laws. However, some women are physically unable to work in a factory, or simply can’t leave home each day for 10+ hours, limited to any work available given to them at home. Some local producers will hire stay-at-home seamstresses knowing they can pay exceptionally low wages almost unnoticed – sometimes paying 8 cents per of pants sewn, well below Thailand's legal minimum.

Women and their families deserve an opportunity to earn a comfortable living wage. FSO exists to break this cycle of limited opportunity and empower communities through sustainable job creation. Hammock making has become a growing source of income for our team of seamstresses, and with your help we can continue to grow these opportunities for more women and their families.

We believe happy hands make happy products. Learn more about our team and where your products come from below.
