I have been testing out a lot of hammocks in my series 12 months in a hammock on youtube. I thought to myself, "self, you should try to make one of these camping hammocks, everyone says it is pretty cheap". So I looked into getting all the materials and discovered it is not that cheap in fact it is kind of expensive.

A question for all you hammock companies out there, how do you sell your products at the prices you do? Do you purchase everything at a fraction of the cost?

When I go to local fabric stores I am looking at 100$ just for ripstop. I am in Canada so I don't know if maybe it is cheaper to get these supplies in the states.

Does anyone have any advise or tips on how to find cheap suplies for hammock making? or a list of wholesale suppliers?
