Description

Fantastic hammock from the Colombian Wayuu people, from whom we have been buying hammocks and bags since 1992. The hammocks are made of acrylic, because the sun shines so brightly in La Guajira that synthetic colors fade too quickly in the sun. The Wayuu Indians are famous for their exceptional weaving techniques. 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
