WholeStory Collective's Fabrics are Artisan-Crafted

WholeStory Collective checks all the boxes for a 21st century company: it offers sustainable products, it provides for people who need aid, and it helps to employ local, traditional artisans. The company sells hammocks and lounge chairs made from sustainably harvested teak wood and polyester, and 10 percent of the proceeds from each purchase go towards helping a family in need to build a home.

WholeStory Collective's chairs and hammocks are made by traditional Nicaraguan craftspeople, giving them a steady source of employment that makes use of their local knowledge. Through the company's donations, it has thus far built four homes for families in the city of El Sauce, Nicaragua, where the furniture itself is crafted.
