In the 15th Century, Christopher Columbus, in the narrative of his first voyage, noted: ``A great many Indians in canoes came to the ship to-day for the purpose of bartering their cotton, and hamacas, or nets, in which they sleep". This was the first known reference in Europe to the South American "hammock", and hammocks have since become popular the world over, owing to their simplicity, style, practicality and shear comfort. Our Hammocks are handmade in South America in traditional styles, using high quality materials. These are luxurious hammocks made from 100% cotton are authentic, long-lasting, comfortable and easy to care for.

Hammock Accessories (Amazonas)
You will need to decide how you wish to support your new hammock. The classic place to put your hammock is between 2 trees, but ideally placed trees are not always available, in which case, you can use one tree together with our special Madera support, or use one of our free-standing hammock supports - ideal for patios. We also supply wall fixtures for attaching hammocks to walls or posts, indoors and outside. We also stock matching cushions and protective covers.more info

How to lie in a hammock: The most important thing is to arrange the hammock's suspension loops at head height, and only some 3m distant from each other, thereby allowing the hammock to hang down in a deep arc. This then allows a diagonal lying position, like a real Brazilian ("from corner to corner"), and not straight. This keeps the back straight and is the secret of being able to lie comfortably and relaxed for hours on end in a hammock. As wobbly wooden cross-pieces are intentionally not used, one lies securely and without fear of falling out! In Brazil, hammocks are still used as beds, as they always have been. This is the reason that they are as wide and comfortable as a bed! Even if you are only going to use your hammock for relaxation, you should still try to adopt the Brazilian way of lying: Contrary to European ideas, hammocks are not hung taut.

Do I need hammock accessories? If you just buy the hammock itself, you will need to provide a means to support the hammock yourself. At each end of your hammock you will find a hard-wearing loop, woven from the gathering of hammock threads. The simplest do-it-yourself support is made from a piece of rope, threaded through each end-loop, and then tied to a tree, post or wall bracket. If you prefer to simplify things, we stock a full range of easy to fit supports - from free-standing hammock frames (ideal for the patio), to tree ropes and wall fixings. We also stock matching pillows and hammock covers, ideal for prolonging the life of your hammock if you keep it permanently outside.
