For eight years, Maria and her husband have been perfecting the art of hammock weaving in their family-run workshop. They told us how this is an art passed down through generations, dating all the way back to the Mayans. Now, they are excited to pass this age-old technique down to their daughters.
The craft involves a lot of skill and repetition - back and forth, walking the length of the loom as they loop the string over and over. Needless to say, it takes a lot of patience. Eight days worth of patience to be exact.
The end result is the most amazing hammock you’ve ever laid in. Trust us – once you nap in one of these hammocks, you’ll wonder how you’ve made it your whole life sleeping in a bed.
With every bit of the painstaking attention to detail you’d expect from this group, it’s no wonder each chair is truly a work of art.
