Once a year the world celebrates International Women’s Day in March. But at Color Cloud Hammocks, we don't want to wait until March. We celebrate women doing great work everyday!
Did you know that Color Cloud Hammocks was founded by women, and every brightly colored hammock we’ve sold in the last 7 years has been made by a women in Cambodia or Ethiopia?
We’re proud to have created a fabulous hammock loved by men and women alike. We’re also proud that our hammocks are made dif...ferently from every other travel hammock on the market today.
From the very first hammock made by Color Cloud Hammocks, we made the intentional choice to forgo big factories and low-cost supply chains to invest into the communities where our hammocks are created.

We started making our hammocks in Ethiopia 3 years ago because we found a way to scale our production in a manner that aligned with our underlying social goals to support the creation of fair-paying jobs for women.
Apparently we aren't the only ones who've discovered that Ethiopia is an up and coming powerhouse in the textile industry.
Congrats to our friends at SWAYY Insulated Hammocks for tying for 2nd place last night at Chattanooga’s “Will This Float?” competition! (We also love that in addition to a great prize package of business services, 1st Place/People’s Choice winner Asili Labs took home a Lifeboat Color Cloud Hammock!)
Peter Bodurtha (and his ukelele) has always been a #BrightSpot in the Color Cloud world! This is a video from 2012 of him playing a song he wrote for our colorful clouds. Happy Birthday, Peter! Happy Birthday, Color Cloud!
The very first hammock we ever created -- more than 7 years ago -- was pink and blue and had the secret code name "Parrot Fish". The Parrot Fish beta hammock was created in Cambodia, and went for a field test in Homer, Alaska (pictured here) while we were trying to figure out if it was really feasible to start a hammock company. This image of co-founder Tianna Weaver hanging out in Alaska is a #BrightSpot to us because it reminds us of our simple, yet colorfully fabulous beginnings!
Remembering that time 110 of us hammock flashmobbed Chattanooga with the world's longest rainbow hammock chain on the Walnut Street Bridge. #BrightSpots
This week marks SEVEN years of Color Cloud Hammocks!
Even before we blew out the candles on our first birthday cake in 2010, we had one big wish: We wished that our hammocks would bring colorful moments into the lives of all the people who touched them.
We call these colorful moments Bright Spots, and since the day we dreamed up Color Cloud, we've been scheming on how we can bring more of them into the world....
As we prepare to celebrate our 7th birthday we've been reflecting on some of our brightest moments as the world's most colorful hammock company. Like that time we created the world's longest flashmob hammock chain, landed a hammock on all 7 continents, and got voted the least extinct hammock company by the most extinct reptile.
While we hope you enjoy our Bright Spot memories-- we'd be even more excited if you'd share yours. Post a pic of your favorite Color Cloud moment on Instagram or Facebook and tag #BrightSpots.
And most of all... thanks for making the world a little bit brighter in the last 7 years! We're grateful for you!
We're super excited to be featured on the Side Hustle School podcast today with Chris Guillebeau!
