This one-of-a-kind hammock features a set of crochet varandas,the elegant embellishments incorporated to the Brazilian hammock with the arrival of the Portuguese in the 16thCentury. The sole purpose of this lush detail is to add beauty to the sleeping hammock.
Depending on the intricacy of the design, each set of varandascan take months to create. We are honored to collaborate with the six remaining crochet ladies in our hometown in Northern Brazil. They create these beautiful pieces by hand, one twist of thread at a time.
We are committed to preserving the art of fine thread crochet, which is threatened to disappear in this part of the world.
