Made Responsibly In Small Batches

Take it easy with our packable travel hammock, with rope kit!

Lightweight, durable, and easy to set up & stow away. 
Our single Vdora parachute hammocks are ideal to take anywhere! Plus, with our nautical rope kit, you can easily set up camp wherever you think best.

The travel hammock is packed in its own attached storage pouch, making it a great choice for a travel bed, and relaxation station.

 

Hang between palm trees, overlooking mountains, or even at the office (we won't tell). What a life!

The hammock in detail:
Size: 320 X 155 cm / 10' 6" X 4' 11"
Weight: 500g / 17.6 oz
Carrying Capacity: 200 kg / 440 lbs
Material: High Grade Parachute Nylon

The travel hammock comes with a set-up system using durable stainless hooks. If you want more flexibility on where you set up your hammock, you might want to grab a Nautical Rope Kit.

Side note: if you're planning to hang your hammock between trees, don't forget your tree guards to protect the trunk - often, a t-shirt would suffice.

Made ethically.

Fair trade and ethical practices are our top priority. To make these amazing parachute hammocks, we teamed up with Ticket To The Moon, the original creators of the camping hammock. They are based in Indonesia where they've established jobs for the locals and set up a local charity.

The TTTM team is composed only of adults (we have 0 tolerance for child labour) who are paid fair wages, pension and social security. Your purchase will help keep their community and the foundation maintain and even improve their situation further.

Giving back.

 

To this day, a portion of the proceeds from your hammock purchase still goes to the TTTM foundation supporting the Sumbanese Kodi tribe in the east thru health, educational, cultural & development aid programs. To date (est. 2009) the foundation has successfully helped the local community with building new infrastructure and education facilities, malaria prevention programs, and access to clean water. 

Environmentally conscious production.

Any fabric left over after our unique products have been cut is creatively turned into new solutions like our lightweight mini backpacks.

True sustainability in harmony with nature.

Project Vdora was born out of necessity - a need for eco conscious, ethical and smart solutions. There is always a compromise to be made when it comes to consumption.

The answer to environmental and social concerns lie within respect & moderation.

It's not enough for an item to be "eco". A true eco-friendly piece has to be smart & becoming - able to keep up with your lifestyle gracefully, so you can do more with less. In turn, consume less and consume slow.
This is the aim of Project Vdora:
To provide true quality capsule pieces for year-round wear - in virtually any climate - through mindful design, environmental choices & labour practices that support small, individual & local livelihood.

With the right solutions & virtuous attitude we can live beautifully in grace and harmony.

Now, this is the good life.

#quevdora
When designing Vdora's smart clothing, I carefully select high quality eco-friendly fabrics that meet the brand's sustainability & ethical standards. 
Vdora's principal fabrics are anti-microbial, temperature regulating, odor resistant and gentle on both the skin and the environment.

Designer & Project Director

 

Vdora presents versatile clothing that meet your needs by using these smart fabrics: 100% Ethically Sourced Merino Wool, 100% Recycled PET treated with ChitoSante and organic plant-based fabrics namely Tencel & Bamboo.

100% Merino Wool

 
vdora merino wool versa line
The Versa Line utilizes ethically sourced 100% Merino wool. It is reactive, natural, renewable and biodegradable.

 

Lightweight, Soft & Resilient 
Unlike other wool products, Vdora's fine Merino wool is non-itchy! This is due to the ultra-fine fibres that make up Merino. It also has a natural elasticity and resilience that enable our versatile apparel to fit well and move with you.

 

Moisture Wicking & Temperature Resistant
Merino wool is excellent for keeping your body cool when it's warm, and warm when it's cool - ideal for all 4 seasons!

 

Keep you cool.
Merino moves moisture - even as vapor, before it turns to sweat - from your skin, keeping you cooler when your body temperature rises. This makes for a breathable fabric that is ideal for hot climates and exercising!

 

Stay comfortably warm
Merino wool's natural crimp makes for a natural insulation in the cooler months by trapping "dead air" creating a buffer to the cold.

Merino apparel is amazing at keeping you from feeling cold & damp. Merino wool fibres excel in moving moisture away from the skin. So much so that even if the fabric gets wet, the surface area of your skin can remain dry. According to a few researches, Merino fabrics can absorb up to 30% of their dry weight before feeling wet. Most synthetic fabrics typically feel wet after they absorb less than 7%.

 

Anti-Bacterial & Odor Resistant
Merino wool has natural anti-bacterial properties.On top of that, because of its awesome moisture-wicking properties, odor causing bacteria can't thrive!
Wash less. Save time & water!

 

UV Protection
This fine organic Merino wool is naturally UV resistant (up to UPF 50) so you can worry less and enjoy the sun more!

 

Recommended Care:
Hand wash cold or machine wash in gentle/cool setting. Hang or lay flat to dry. If you must iron, please do so in low temperature.

100% Recycled PET, treated with EPA certified ChitoSante

vdora fluid rpet collection
 with UPF 50 protection (all day UVA & UVB sun protection)

 

The Fluid Collection is made with 100% Recycled PET - yes, the same kind of plastic used on your water bottles! We strongly encourage recycling materials that would otherwise end up in our oceans. While a lot of people don't know how to recycle, reuse or re-purpose their plastic bottles, the conscious fashion innovators have come up with a way to turn plastic into wearable fabric. We're taking advantage of this technology. Vdora's Fluid pieces are made from GRS Gold Level certified recycled yarn.

 

Optimized with ChitoSante
While it's easy to want to support and wear recycled plastic, we know that it's a challenge to overcome our inhibitions to sport them in warmer temperatures when we tend to perspire. This is why we use ChitoSante treated rPET fabric.

 

ChitoSante is a new environmentally friendly treatment that is made from a natural biomass - crab and/or shrimp shells. It is the only anti-bacterial bio-agent in the world that is certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

 

Chitosante is breathable, durable, quick drying, softanti-static and easy to handle. On top of these already astounding benefits, ChitoSante also has natural & durable anti-bacterial properties. Wash less. Save time & water!

 

This means that our ChitoSante treated Fluid Collection strongly inhibit the growth of bacteria, allowing them to stay fresh, hygienic & odor resistant... even with minimal wash!
 
Recommended Care :
Hand or machine wash in gentle/cool setting with similar colours. Hang to dry. If you must iron, please do so in low temperature

Plant Based Specialty Fabrics

plant based organic fabric vdora

Silky Soft (Tencel) Lyocell Fabric

A botanic fibre, Tencel is produced from the pulp of forest grown trees (such as eucalyptus) using a close looped process (virtually no waste). How? The Lenzing group (developers of Tencel) recovers more than 99% of the solvent in a closed loop and repeatedly feeds it back into the production process.
The Tencel fabric itself is soft, smooth, vibrant, durable and anti-bacterial!


Bamboo Fleece

The breathable and sustainable ultra-soft fleece is made from Bamboo plants. Bamboo does not require fertilizers or pesticides for cultivation and it grows rapidly without depleting the soil. The fibre it creates is durable and naturally breathable & anti-bacterial - truly a great material for sweatshirts!
Wash less. Save time & water!

 

Recommended Care : 
Wash in gentle/warm setting with similar colours.
Tumble dry on low heat or hang to dry.
