Currently we develop authentically handcrafted hammocks while incorporating design trends, resulting in a modern take on heritage, Luxury Hammocks with a meaningful story behind it.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We forged a relationship with indigenous Wayuu artisans to produce Luxury Hammocks: The partnership ensures high-quality hammocks are made with the love, care, and attention. the Wayuu people breath into their personal garments and are very proud of their heritage.
Next, as we discovered more techniques and crafters, we expanded into other regions of Colombia and sourced artisans from Sucre to make other styles of 100 percent handcrafted hammocks.
¨Similar to the Wayuu weaving tradition, artists in Sucre value and take pride in the techniques used to produce hammocks that will last a lifetime.¨

Each hammock tells a story of love and passion, composed through the hands of the artists who tightly lays each strand of yarn next to the other and becomes a beautiful hammock.
Dedication is engraved into each string of the hammock’s fabric. Further more, this contributes to the livelihood and sustainability of communities where people’s jobs are threatened by manufactured goods.
Do good and feel good, lounge in one of our hammocks, and feel the positive energy, love, and passion that radiate from its fibers.
