Mexican Hammocks

Our handmade hammocks are the cream of the hammock world and are woven exclusively for us on special wooden looms made to our own exacting specifications. They're luxuriously roomy, incredibly comfortable and simple to hang. They are not the same as other Mexican style hammocks available through other websites.
 
We have over 30 years of hammock experience and only supply handmade hammocks of the finest quality. We offer fast delivery and a gift wrapping service.
 
We have three different types of hammock; the Chacmool Hammock, Cozaana Hammock and Caribe Hammock. These handmade hammocks are in a class of their own, the largest and most comfortable hammocks you will find anywhere.

  • ** Please Note: Each 'Multicoloured' Chacmool is unique with it's own combination of colours. They are all vibrant and beautiful. The pictures shown above are just two examples. If there are any colour combinations you don't like you can let us know in the customer message box at checkout and we will do our best to accomodate you.

  • Why buy this hammock?
    This hammock is the largest, most comfortable hammock currently available anywhere in the UK.
  • Suppose I only need a hammock for 1 or 2 persons?
    The larger the hammock the more comfortable it is. You lie diagonally or straight across a real hammock and, with a larger size, the threads are under less tension. You achieve a flatter lying position and the hammock will last longer.
  • How does it compare with other types of hammock?
    You will not find a larger hammock of this quality in the UK at a lower price. Every one of our hammocks is triple-woven and tension checked. We have been working directly with co-operatives in rural Mexico for more than 25 years and pride ourselves on the unsurpassable quality of our hammocks.
  • What about space?
    Takes the same amount of space to hang as most Mexican style hammocks (approx. 3.5m min). If your space is greater than this, just extend upwards with extra rope.
  • Should I go for cotton or nylon?
    Our most popular hammock is the cotton Chacmool, for use both outside and inside the home. The nylon version is more resistant to wet weather, however there is nothing quite like the feel of natural cotton.
  • What about hammock stands?
    We have 4 types of hammock stand or rig which will accommodate the Chacmool, the Cozaana and the Caribe. Most other stands will be too small for our hammocks - please check with us first. Go to the stands & fixings page or select from the 'Accessories' box above.

If there are any colour combinations you don't like you can let us know in the customer message box at checkout and we will do our best to accomodate you.

  • Why buy this hammock?
    The only reason to buy this hammock in preference to the Chacmool is if price is the main consideration. Whilst the Cozaana is incredibly comfortable, you will notice a dramatic difference when comparing it to the Chacmool.
  • Suppose I only need a single hammock?
    There is no excess material when any of our hammocks are used by only one person. All of the threads support your weight equally as the hammock opens to accommodate your height. This is the secret to the unsurpassed comfort of a triple-woven net Mexican Hammock. A smaller hammock results in more tension. If the hammock is too small you will feel squeezed and uncomfortable - as with conventional European hammocks. We do not supply hammocks smaller than the Cozaana for this reason.
  • What about space?
    The Cozaana needs the same amount of space to hang as the Chacmool above (approx. 3.5m min).
  • Should I go for cotton or nylon?
    Our most popular Cozaana is the cotton version. The nylon style is more resistant to wet weather, however there is nothing quite like the feel of natural cotton.
  • What about hammock stands?
    We have 4 types of hammock stand or rig which will accommodate the Chacmool, the Cozaana and the Caribe. Most other stands will be too small for our hammocks - please check with us first. Go to the stands & fixings page or select from the 'Accessories' box above.

  • Why buy this hammock?
    The Caribe hammock differs from the Chacmool and the Cozaana in that the cotton thread used is much thicker and the weave much looser. Whilst not as fine and luxurious as our other hammocks, the result is a robust, hard-wearing hammock which is more resistant to the rough and tumble antics of young children and exuberant adults.
  • What about space?
    Takes slightly less space to hang (approx. 3.1m min).
  • What about hammock stands?
    We have 4 types of hammock stand or rig which will accommodate the Caribe, the Chacmool and the Cozaana. Most other stands will be too small for our hammocks - please check with us first. Go to the stands & fixings page or select from the 'Accessories' box above.
Advice on Quality
  • Triple-Woven
    All of our hammocks are triple-woven, a technique where three threads are interwoven in a continuous, overlapping manner throughout the whole hammock body.
  • Superior Quality
    Triple-woven hammocks are far superior to double-woven Mexican hammocks where the weave is very loose, providing much less support and which sag quickly. A double-woven hammock may be described as 'Large' or 'Huge' because it will appear to open very wide. There can be no comparison, however, when it comes to quality, comfort and longevity. In short - make sure your hammock is triple-woven.
  • Tension Checked
    All of our hammocks are tension-checked to ensure that no threads bear excessive weight by being too tightly stretched in relation to the surrounding weave when the hammock is in use.
  • Loving Care
    Our hammocks are made with loving care and attention by craftspeople who are proud of their reputation and skill and who would abhor the idea of being associated with a poor quality product.
Advice on Size
  • Which size is best for you?
    You should bear the following in mind when trying to decide on the best size of hammock for you.
  • Space?
    Our Chacmool and Cozaana hammocks are approximately equal in length and hence need roughly the same amount of space to hang (approx. 3.5m minimum). The difference is in the width of the net itself and the number of threads making up the main body.
  • Comfort?
    The Cozaana is an incredibly comfortable hammock, however you would notice a dramatic difference if you compared it to the Chacmool. The Chacmool is much more comfortable as you are under less tension due to the greater number of threads supporting you. You will acheive a much flatter lying position and feel completely relaxed and at ease.
  • So whats the verdict?
    If cost is a prime factor (or weight when hiking, travelling, etc.) then the Cozaana is a good choice. In general, however, we would recommend the Chacmool. The price difference over the number of years you are likely to own your hammock is minimal and it is simply the most luxurious hammock you can buy.
Why Buy From Us
  • Quality Control
    Size and quality vary enormously in the handwoven Mexican style of hammock. We work directly with a small number of craftspeople and have developed an excellent system of quality control which ensures that you receive the finest product of its type currently available.
  • Buy Direct
    Please do not confuse our hammocks with other, so-called 'Mexican hammocks' which are often second grade, double-woven and purchased in bulk from intermediaries. The practice of distributing inferior quality hammocks and the introduction of additional handlers in the chain between producer and consumer does nothing to promote the use and enjoyment of hammocks in Europe or to support the Fair Trade movement.
  • Fair Trade
    Purchasing from us not only stimulates the growth of fair trade but also helps to support and protect children in danger in Central America through our donations to Casa Alianza.
