For someone unfamiliar with Hushamok, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Hushamok unites design and function with products that offer sleep and relaxation for babies and children. Our designs are fixed to a single point allowing for freedom of movement. The gentle rocking motion of the Hushamok Baby Hammock and MySeat gives families the gift of sleep and downtime for children.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Founded in 2007 by Julie & Mark Soboil after the birth of their first child, a friend recommended a traditional baby hammock. The baby hammock worked wonders in soothing their restless and unsettled baby. As much as they loved the concept of this 1000-year-old invention, they felt it needed an update to ensure the product was safe and secure.
With Mark and Julie’s background in Environmental Sciences and interest in using eco-friendly and organic materials their journey to design modern baby furniture began. A year later Hushamok began selling its inaugural product, the Hushamok baby hammock. The couple and their team of committed designers are immensely proud of their creations.
Hushamok operates as a family business in both the US and beautiful New Zealand, the country they call home, along with their two boys, Lucas and Leo.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Hushamok?
The Hushamok Okoa Hammock is our most popular design with the use of natural materials and 100% organic textiles. The Okoa Stand is made from European Beechwood, known for its excellent physical properties; the design is not only beautiful, it is functional and sustainable. The Hammock fits perfectly within the moon-like crescent shape of the stand, and the solid aluminum castings hold it all in place and provide a perfect finished detail. It is a stunning piece of furniture that compliments any style of home.
What sets Hushamok apart in the baby marketplace?
Hushamok products are truly unique and are designed to stimulate your child’s development with a gentle rocking motion in all directions. The shape and design of the hammock encloses baby from the sides creating a safe womb-like feeling that relaxes baby. The Hushamok MySeat gives the developing child a space to call his or her own, an ideal space for early development.What can parents expect from Hushamok at the LA Baby Show?
