Piau­í Artisan 'Banana' Hammocks


Durable, comfy and beautiful.  We supply these hammocks made in Brazil's North-East - they are fabulous. They are thick, woven cotton that gives a very natural comfy feel.  They are large or extra-large in size.  Each hammock is photographed so the one you see is the one you buy - they are all unique and the price differences just reflect what it cost to make.  Fringe that gives these hammocks their real 'relaxed' beauty.  What's more - these hammocks are made to last - they are very robust.   We used to have one on the wall in my apartment in Brazil; it adds a really relaxed feel to a place.

The hammocks are traditional varieties made by a women's co-operative in Pedro II, Piauí.  This place is famous in Brazil for such hammocks.  In the words of my friend Maria, who buys them and sends them to us:

"...they are all hand made. each hammock takes at least 10 days to be made. they are made in a very old and tradicional way. they take loads of string and patience . the women raise their family with this endless work.most of them learned how to do it with their mother and grandmother.mainly, its a family business.they do the hammocks at home."    

These are very fairly-traded hammocks.    To see more about these artisans CLICK HERE.
