Blue Plaid Hammock with Yellow Crochet
We’ve been told that laying in our hammocks feels like being suspended in a blanket in midair. The strong yet soft woven cotton wraps you in a cozy embrace.The crochet details add a touch of luxury to the experience.
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 16th Century. 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 varandas can take months to create. We are honored to collaborate with the six remaining crochet ladies in our hometown in Brazil. They create these beautiful pieces by hand, one twist of thread at a time, just as their mothers and grandmothers did.
We are committed to preserving the art of fine thread crochet, which is threatened to disappear in this part of the world.
