The Mexican Hammock Company was established in 1983 to provide an outlet in Europe for co-operative based groups in rural Mexico producing handwoven mayan hammocks.
The company was set up as a joint venture between ourselves in the UK and a small group of villagers in southern Mexico with the specific aim of developing reliable, alternative sources of income in areas of high unemployment and relative poverty.
The Mexican Hammock Company helps to support hundreds of weavers and their families in rural Mexico. We are authenticated by Ethical Junction, SafeBuy and Shopsafe and were awarded Which? Web Trader status by the Consumers' Association in 1999.
We continue to adhere to the same rigorous trading code of practice today and are committed to both fairtrade and the pursuance of ethical lifestyles.
We hope you enjoy this collection of beautiful handmade hammocks and other quality items brought to you direct from Mexico. Each article is unmistakably unique and originates from the hands of a single artisan, setting it apart from modern, mass-produced products.
