Our hammock-making clients, Moises and Zenaida, come from the Nauhtl indigenous group from the state of Guerrero, where hammock making is a traditional and common art form passed down through generations. The talented craftsmen (and women) weave cotton yarn by hand using wooden pallets. Both Moises and Zenaida were taught slightly different techniques, meaning you can choose a tightly woven hammock with smaller holes, or a loosely woven hammock with bigger holes. While the hammocks were traditionally made with cotton, the artisans now use nylon, too, in order to have a wider range of colors available.
Please note: All prices are in USD. Each product is bought from the artisan at the price they request and believe is fair for their work. Processing, handling and some integrated shipping costs are added to the final price.
