Handmade hammocks from Ecuador

At EcuaFina we sell the original and handmade hammocks from Ecuador. Hammocks are becoming increasingly popular and that isn't surprising because a hammock is ideal for lazing around in and enjoying the environment.

Hammocks have been used for centuries and come from the Indians of South and Central America. In South and Central America, a hammock is simply part of the furniture, which is used both indoors and outdoors. Fun fact! Brazilians often take their hammocks with them when they stay overnight with family or friends. That is a lot easier than an air mattress, pump, sleeping bag, pillow and so on. Sailors also used hammocks on sailing ships to sleep in. They take up less space than a bed and because they hang, they absorb the heaving movements of the ship on the waves.

And did you know that lounging in a hammock is good for your back? Because a hammock hangs, the hammock uses gravity to support body weight instead of defying gravity like a mattress. This flexible form of support relieves pressure points such as hips, ribs and shoulders. The weight is evenly distributed, while the fabric naturally conforms to your body. Moreover, it has been scientifically proven that you can relax better by rocking a hammock.

Suspension system

Our hammocks are easy to hang thanks two the sturdy eyes on either side. You can attach the hammock in different places and ways, for example between two trees, or on two sturdy hooks that are in the wall or wooden poles or you can attach it in a hammock stand. Nowadays they are often used because you can move a stand. These standards are available in various shapes and materials such as wood and aluminum.

A hammock for indoor and outdoor use

Hammocks can be used both indoors and outdoors and give your home or garden a nice atmosphere. Place your hammock in your garden, roof terrace, balcony, living room, bedroom or veranda and enjoy the surroundings.

Washing instructions

Ideally you would like to use your hammock 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. At some point, it must or will be washed, but how do you do that best? Because the hammocks are made of cotton, they can simply be washed in the washing machine at 30 or 40 degrees. Make sure that you do not wash the hammock higher than 40 degrees, otherwise the hammock may shrink.

Some hammocks have braided details, so it is important that you handle them with care. For example, put the hammock in a laundry bag or old pillowcase so that the braided details can't get stuck on anything in your washing machine. You can also choose to wash the hammock by hand. The more careful you are with the hammock, the more beautiful it will remain!

Comfortable in the hammock

If the hammock is hung a little higher, you can sit comfortably in the hammock. Make sure that you sit in the middle and that the feet are flat on the floor and that the knees are at an angle of about 90 degrees. Tand the angle of the knees is about 90 degrees. That makes getting out easy.
