Who Made Your Clothes, Part 14, DD HammocksShare on Facebook
This article series by Varusteleka is part of the global Fashion Revolution Week, a campaign that aims at making the sourcing, manufacture, and sales of clothes more ethical and transparent. We believe that this is a damn good thing and thus we were very happy to participate in it for the third time now in 2022.
During this campaign week, we continue the series that introduces our partners and their fantastic gang who makes your clothes and accessories. In this fourteenth part, you will meet DD Hammocks.
DD Hammocks makes your, well, hammocks
DD Hammocks was born out of the founder Nick Vansittart’s passion for traveling and hammocking in 2005. We have sold the Frontline Hammocks since 2014 and deeper cooperation between Varusteleka and DD Hammocks started in 2016 with the development of Särmä Erakko products.
Together with DD Hammocks are made the Erakko hammocks and tarps. The products are manufactured mainly in one factory located in Zhejiang, China.
In the picture standing with the boxes is the packing manager Yong, who has been working at the factory for 7 years now.
After the products have been quality control checked, Yong makes sure they get packed in the correct bags and then in the correct boxes. During busier times it is no easy task since there are a number of similar colored but different products going out at the same time.
Hongyan is an experienced and hardworking employee. She is an expert with the sewing machine and takes part in making hammocks, tarps, tents, and accessories.
Hongyan has been working with DD Hammocks for eight years.
