Stretching out alone and reading a good book in an outdoor hammock or porch swing can be an extremely peaceful experience. Taking some time to relax with nature, watching the clouds roll by, hearing the birds sing and feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin, is sure to lower your blood pressure and level of stress. However most hammocks are double size, and are comfortable to share with a loved one or a close friend. Relaxing in a hammock with your family or friends will often lead to great conversation, stories and happy memories. We believe that its these moments of togetherness and relaxation that make a hammock a great investment at any price.
Not only should a great outdoor hammock be extremely comfortable but it should also be durable to the elements. Until recently its been a catch twenty two that truly comfortable hammocks like the ones woven in the Caribbean were hand crafted from natural cotton, if left outdoors in the elements it would not take long for these natural fibers to break down, rot, mold or mildew. Previously if you were looking for an outdoor hammock to leave on the patio or in the garden your only practical choice would have been a polyester ‘rope’ hammock like a Hatteras or Pawleys Island Hammock because of their durability. But the experts agree that these rope hammocks are really not the most comfortable.
Truly comfortable outdoor hammocks are a great addition to any patio, porch or garden, they can be hung between trees, under a gazebo or between posts in the ground. Another option for outdoor hammocks is a hammock stand. With the aid of a stand your hammock becomes portable and can be placed just about anywhere, or its location can be chosen to take full advantage of the sun or the shade.
Our company’s focus is to hand weave truly comfortable and durable outdoor hammocks, chairs and swings. To achieve this goal we supply soft-spun polyester cords to some of the worlds best hammock weavers. Unlike the thick uncomfortable ropes that you find on other outdoor hammocks, ours are much finer cords that are closely woven to create a luxurious, supportive bed.
The advantages of polyester over cotton for an outdoor hammock are numerous. It will not rot, mold or mildew. It is easy to keep clean, especially if you choose a darker color like mocha or hunter green, and because polyester cord will not hold much water it will dry quickly after rain storms. Now, with our soft-spun polyester cords our outdoor hammocks also get the most important advantage, they are amazingly comfortable.
Our collection of soft-spun polyester outdoor hammocks come in three distinct styles.
‘ Caribbean Jumbo Hammocks ', are our improvement over the traditional American Rope Hammock. Rope hammocks have long had a reputation amongst hammock aficionados as being the least comfortable. We kept the classic American spreader bar design but replaced the thick old fashioned ropes with ultra comfortable soft-spun polyester woven into a tight knit micro weave. The result, all the looks and style of an American spreader bar hammock but with a massive improvement in comfort and stability.
‘ Caribbean Mayan Hammocks ', follow a more indigenous Caribbean style hammock design. This time we beefed up the fine natural cotton cords that Mayan hammocks are woven from with our slightly thicker more durable soft-spun polyester micro weave. If, like thousands of other savvy hammock users, you love the floating on air sensation of a genuine Mayan hammock but would like to have the option of leaving your hammock outdoors, Caribbean Mayan Hammocks are a great choice.
‘ Caribbean Hammocks Chairs ' if you don’t have two perfectly spaced trees or are short on space, but would like to have all the comfort of a genuine Caribbean style hammock then why not recline and put your feet up in one of our amazing Caribbean Hammock Chairs. Our unique twist on this style is a much wider spreader bar, larger seat and longer footrest. Anyone, any size can really stretch out in this amazing hammock swing. You could even hang your chair indoors and bring the outdoor hammock experience to any room in your house.
