Amelie's enthusiasm for hammocks arose during a trip to Nicaragua in the deep jungles of the Bosawas. Inspired by this type of travel, which leaves almost no trace, Amelie is currently working as an expert for sustainable tourism to create a travel concept from it. While researching partners for her travel concept, she tested numerous hammock manufacturers and was so convinced of the quality of Lesovik's fairly produced products that she decided to distribute them in German-speaking countries.
Benno's hammock adventure began in the tropical jungles of Cambodia and Vietnam. Travelling through various forests around the world made him an avid hammock enthusiast who would only sleep in a tent if you were above the tree line. In the meantime, he can increasingly be found in the local forests with his bike and hammock and is full of verve.
Gosia and Rafal - a couple of outdoor enthusiasts in love with minimalism and the Scandinavian tradition of friluftsliv. Their extensive outdoor experience and professional design skills are the basic blocks of what Lesovik is today. They got to know each other somewhere in late 2010, when they met at the university in Cracow and began to wander together. Over the following years, they incorporated their homemade hammocks into their hiking trips, which proved to be an effective accessory on numerous occasions. Fast forward to 2012, when they decided to fully commit to having their own hammock company and thus Lesovik was born. The company was funded out of private student's savings and is still being developed by the same couple. Each has separate, distinctive areas of specialization. Gosia takes care of formal, financial and organising tasks...,
...While Rafal fully devotes himself to design, values and brand creation. These two spirits combined for more than 10 years now are the spiritus movens of Lesovik
