Special hammock made by the Wayuu Indians in La Guajira Colombia. To prevent the colors from fading quickly in the bright sun, the women use acrylic yarns. These hammocks with a width of 250 cm are the widest in the world and are therefore used as real family hammocks. Handwoven on standing looms. Warranty 3 years, but with proper use they will last a lifetime. This hammock is double woven for good insulation against rising cold. In La Guajira it can cool down considerably at night.

Description

Fantastic hammock from the Colombian Wayuu people, from whom we have been buying hammocks and bags since 1992. We consider the hammocks as art. These exceptional hammocks are not made anywhere in the world. The hammock is double woven and is therefore extra thick. This is really necessary in the cold desert nights of La Guajira, but it is therefore also suitable for cool climates. Girls have to weave a hammock before their wedding, which takes them months to do. This gives them the technique under their fingers and almost all the Wayuu women are able to weave a beautiful hammock. The hammocks are very wide, 250cm and suitable for an entire Wayuu family. And they’re not really skinny. They are a very healthy people and have inhabited the plains of La Guajira for thousands of years. Their techniques have therefore been developed over a very long period of time and passed on from generation to generation. With the Wayuu people, the women are the boss and the children bear the name of their mother. That feminine element can also be found very clearly in the exuberant and tasteful colors that they use in the manufacture of the hammocks and the beautiful fringes. Since making such hammocks is a whole process, they are not cheap. We pay the Wayuu the price they ask for it. They are well worth it. With proper use, these hammocks will last for many years. Load capacity 250kg. IS MADE TO ORDER.
