Why our Mexican Hammocks
We believe we have the best Mexican hammocks in Australia, yet that is really up to you to decide. However here is why we think so...
1. Skillfully Hand-woven. All our Mexican hammocks are 100% hand-made by local indigenous Mayan Indians in Mexico who have been passing down through the generations the tradition and technique of hammock weaving for over 1000 years.
2. Uniqueness. Every Mexican hammock is individually woven by expert weavers. They are considered artists in their own right, and craft the amazing range of colours and patterns displayed in our hammocks.
3. Quality and Environment. All our hammocks are created with quality in mind. They are designed to provide you and your family with many enjoyable years of relaxation with the proper use and care. Each hammock is quality checked meticulously prior to being taking into stock and sent on to you. Individual care goes into each hammock during the weaving process which can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks to complete. No 'rush jobs' here! Hammocks are woven within the weavers own homes, no factory production is used. This handmade process also makes production a much more environmentally friendly method helping to preserve our environment so we can all continue to enjoy our hammocks in peace for generations to come.
4. Fair Trade. Our hammock supplier in Merida, Mexico is a Fair Trade Federation Member and certified fair trade producer whilst also being a Certified B Corporation company. This ensures wider ranging benefits that directly impact the many weaving communities such as alleviation of poverty, sustainable work opportunities, promotion of gender equality and educational development. Which in turn flows back into the high-quality hammocks they produce as the weavers are happy, healthy and valued.
5. Comfort and Support. A special interwoven diamond weave pattern is used in all our Mexican hammocks. This is what provides you with superior levels of comfort and support, along with greater strength and beauty. This tight open weave pattern is further beneficial in allowing air to circulate through and around your body. This prevents those annoying sweaty patches that can often occur from using other pieces of outdoor furniture in warmer climates. Keeping you cool and comfortable. Both our nylon and cotton hammocks provide you with all the same great features and benefits. Unlike the multitude of cheaper variety hammocks, that are often used once and discarded or disintegrate, you will enjoy quality relaxation and enjoyment time after time. You'll find yourself always looking for an excuse (not that you need one!) to get in some quality hammock time!
6. Beautiful soft cord. All hammocks are woven with thousands of metres of soft cotton and nylon cord. The unique weave and the huge quantities of cord used enable our hammocks to mould around your body and provide the perfect blend of comfort, beauty and strength. 4950 Metres of cord is used for the double hammock, 5700 metres goes into the queen hammock and over 6000 metres in used in the king hammock. These huge quantities of cord are what help make these hammocks so superior in quality, comfort, support and strength. Soft cotton cord is used for the hammock body for superior comfort and the arms of the hammock are made from durable nylon cord for greater strength and resistance. New for 2018 is our range of polyester cord weather resistant hammocks. These are made from a thicker weave, yet are still very soft and comfortable while offering great weather resistant properties.
7. Portability. Our hammocks are both strong and lightweight. The king hammock is conveniently lightweight weighing only 1.5 kg, yet strong enough to support 250 kg. At 1 kg in weight, the double hammock is an ideal personal or travel hammock while still holding up to 150 kg. All hammocks are easy to hang, great for traveling, and compact for storage.
