Introducing Amazonas Hammocks - inspired by the vibrant and high-quality Brazilian hammocks, named after the largest state in northwestern Brazil. We pride ourselves as one of the leading producers of hammocks, with our production site located in the hammock making center of South America - the northeastern region of Brazil.
What makes us stand out is that we provide secure employment opportunities to up to 100 individuals from the impoverished northeast region and nearby favelas. Unlike other global product manufacturers, we prioritize product quality and safe working conditions. To ensure that our ethical standards are met, we conduct regular visits to our production facilities and team to ensure there is no child labor or any other unethical practices.
At Amazonas, quality is of utmost importance. That's why we go the extra mile to ensure that our hammocks are crafted using traditional Brazilian craftsmanship.
Our Material Selection Criteria
At our company, we pay close attention to the stability and colorfastness of each material when selecting threads. We also prioritize data from recent laboratory tests to ensure that our materials are free from harmful substances. For our cotton-based hammocks, we use only 100% Recycled Brazilian Cotton, as we are committed to sustainability and reducing waste.
Preparations for Crafting
To ensure the highest quality of our hammocks, we take special care in selecting and preparing our threads. Our team carefully winds the previously selected threads onto the loom's roll according to the desired pattern of the hammock. Cross threads are then wound onto spindles, preparing them for weaving.
We have a dedicated Loom Master in each production section, a highly respected professional who sets up the loom. They meticulously knot nearly 6,000 longitudinal threads by hand, which takes an entire day to complete. Once finished, the loom is ready for the next step.
Beginning the Weaving Process
Our skilled weavers then get to work, using the power of the loom and high volume of threads to weave cross threads and create 5-20 hammocks per day in a single loom. The density of the fabric and its stability is determined by the combination of the weaver's skill and the power of the loom.
Handmade, Durable Suspension Cords
At Amazonas, we believe that the quality of our hammocks is only as good as the materials we use. That's why we incorporate handmade, durable suspension cords into our hammock production process. These cords are made from the same high-quality cotton as our traditional crochet machines, ensuring consistency in material and strength.
During the weaving process, we use a larger amount of material than usual to create extra-thick cords that make our hammocks especially tear-resistant. Our hammocks can even support up to 280kg loads, giving you peace of mind while you relax and enjoy the outdoors.
To ensure the highest quality, we carefully measure and cut each roll of hammock fabric. We also provide the ends with a continuous loop cord, which is sewn around with an extra-strong 5-fold seam to prevent loose threads. Our team manually binds the correct length cords to the nearly finished hammock, reinforcing the suspension loop and balancing punctual loads.
For some of our hammock designs, such as the Rio and Palacio, we even incorporate hand-woven macramé veranda. Family hammocks feature an additional fabric band that is woven by hand between the cords for added visual appeal and higher spreading strength.
At Amazonas, we take safety seriously. We consistently test our hammocks for their maximum load capacity, ensuring that they can withstand the weight of our customers. Our testing facility, specifically engineered for hammocks, hanging chairs, and frames, can even withstand loads of up to 600kg. With Amazonas hammocks, you can relax with confidence, knowing that you are in good hands.
