Masaya Cotton Weavers
Has been declared a National Cultural Heritage, for its historical and cultural value and for the ancestral tradition that has been standing for over 300 years. Since 2017 we have partnered with Masaya cotton weavers to create contemporary collections made with millenary techniques. Through different partnerships with local and global organizations, we now impact the lives of more than 40 artisans, creating a sustainable source of income and breaking the cycles of poverty in Nicaragua.
Our hammocks are 100% handmade with Manila Cotton, and all of the materials are sourced in Central America. Each hammock takes between 2-4 days to make from start to finish, and when finished goes through a rigorous quality control check. You can be sure that these are some of the finest hammocks available anywhere in the world. You can be assured that you're getting a one of a kind piece of art that's made by one of our amazing workers.
