Where do hammocks come from?

A good thing

Did you know that a hammock is the only piece of furniture that you can lie in for a long time without feeling the need to reposition yourself?

This is because a hammock distributes the weight evenly over the entire length and does not even create a pressure point.

Hammocks. From South America to the world.

The first forms of hammocks served as a place to rest and sleep in Latin America. But Columbus quickly learned to appreciate this type of accommodation on his trips to America around 1492.

It soon turned out that hammocks are particularly suitable for accommodation on ships, since you are still lying straight even with a heavily rocking ship. And so they started their trip to Europe relatively soon.

Due to the temperature, they did not necessarily find the same response there, but fans quickly won over the cloth construction.

Hammocks can basically be differentiated into cloth and net hammocks. These in turn are often available with or without a so-called “spreader bar”. (Pro tip: the ones with spreader bars are also the ones from which you can easily fall out).

Due to the bundled ends you cannot fall out of a HANGING.

New fabrics and technologies have made it possible for hammocks to become ever more weatherproof and lighter. Today they replace the tent for outdoor enthusiasts in large parts of the USA. And from here the wave spilled into the leisure area.

We think that everyone deserves a hammock. And we can proudly say that after many years of testing and sewing, we have created what is probably the most comfortable leisure hammock in the world.

Beds and blankets on which those people slept are a kind of wool nets

- Christopher Columbus (1492)

Doing nothing can be a very special science and you can only really relax if everything, but absolutely everything, is perfect. With our hammocks made of parachute silk, we would like to make a contribution but also give everyone a little incentive to explore the surrounding nature or simply read a good book again.
