    Only one left!

    This is the perfect hammock to relax in at the end of the day, to catch the last of the sun’s warmth. It has orange, red add yellow stripes and the generous width of the cotton fabric gives the hammock ‘sides’, making it more comfortable and safer than narrower fabric hammocks. 
     
    The advantages of a spreader bar hammock are that it dries more easily than a conventional hammock (just in case you forget to bring it in when it rains!) and some people find them easier to get into and out of. However, if you intend to sleep in your hammock, then a hammock without spreader bars is generally preferred as it provides better upper back support. 
     
    Hammocks with spreader bars benefit from being hung relatively taught, so the minimum distance between supports that we recommend for this hammock is 280cm. If the distance between supports is much greater than this, hammock ropes can be used to extend the length of the hammock.

    This tropical hammock is compatiable with our standard hammock stand.
     
    If you have any questions about which hammock is best for you, please see our hammock help page or call us on 01993 823117

    Please note that fixings are not included with the hammock, we recommend one fixing and one rope for you hammock if you are attaching it to a tree.

    Amazonas Hammocks

    Amazonas Hammocks

    Child hammocks, adult hammocks, handmade in Brazil

    The production of traditional hammocks in Brazil started running into trouble a few years ago, as increasing volumes of cheap foam mattresses from the Far East threatened to replace the hammock as the normal bed for Brazilians. Numerous manufacturers were forced to close down and fairtrade was still in its infancy. Nobody believed it was sustainable to offer fair working conditions and to trade viably.

    One of these hammock factories, which had stood empty for years, was the birthplace of Amazonas. A factory was renovated in 1996 and new weaving looms purchased. The pace of growth was so fast that, in 2002, the old buildings were torn down and replaced by a new, state-of-the-art production hall. The modern hall has been equipped with additional looms and a new dust extraction system to ensure a dust-free working environment.

    Amazonas today offers more than 100 workers a secure job. The majority of them are paid two to three times the minimum legal wage, which offers them and their families a steady income. In addition, they enjoy social standards which are largely unheard of in the rural areas of Brazil, such as social security, health insurance and paid holidays. No children are employed. All the workers are trained adults who have undergone extensive vocational training.

    The fact that these hammocks are exported to Europe provides further protection for the workers. The quality of the raw materials corresponds to European standards and the environmental compatibility of the dyes means a healthy working environment for the workers and safe discharge into the rivers. In addition, the hammocks are analysed at regular intervals to ensure no azo dyes, heavy metals, formaldehyde or other pollutants.

    Most of the hammocks Amazonas produce do not have spreader bars so to ensure you sleep soundly you need to understand how best to lie in a hammock. And it is also worth knowing how best to hang a hammock in your garden or house.
