In the tropical climates of the Americas, life without a hammock is unimaginable as they have been a fundamental element of comfort and sleep for many centuries. The origin of the hammock lies within the native communities of Central and South America and it is believed the first hammocks were woven from the bark of a tree called “hamack”, sparking an innovation in rest and relaxation throughout the continent.

Swinging on a hammock creates a natural rhythm, which helps you discover a level of relaxation that even scientists endeavor to study. Swinging on a hammock can help synchronize brain activity and promote better sleep so you can wake up clear-headed and refreshed.

Our handmade hammocks are a beautiful artisanal expression made with love by native souls in Yucatan, Mexico. The soft textiles used cradle your body and ergonomically adapt to you, making them the most comfortable place to relax, meditate, read a book, and enjoy nature.

 

The color mixing of each of our hammocks was specially selected to balance energy vibrations and to decorate inspiring and harmonious spaces with the goal of helping hammockers to live a full and meaningful life.

In Warimba, we design unique handmade pieces born from the magic of an individual’s art work. Each one of our textiles is a love story, experiences transcribed in woven threads that become everlasting artisan creations.

Each hammock takes approximately three weeks to be handmade.

You don’t need advanced handyman skills to hang your hammock. However, hanging a hammock requires precise attention to detail and use of the appropriate tools to ensure the hammock is solidly anchored. Proper installation will prevent potential injury, damage to your walls, and a really embarrassing story.

 

We can’t wait for you to chill out in a comfortable and beautiful WARIMBA Hammock! Our adjustable hammocks can be hung from walls, trees, and even ceilings. However, we must first understand the anatomy of the hammock. There are three parts you need to know: Bed, Arms, and Loops.

 

  • Bed: The part of the hammock where you lay down to relax.

  • Arms: The cords that connect the bed to the loops.

  • Loops: Rings at the end of the hammock that are used for hanging.

 

The hammock’s total length is measured from loop to loop:

HANGING HAMMOCKS BETWEEN TREES

To hang your hammock outdoors, find two strong trees separated by 13 to 16 feet approximately. Take one rope, double it up, and wrap it around the first tree. The rope should be about six to eight feet from the ground. Then, take one hammock loop and put the two ends of the rope through the loop and tie a knot. Pull on the rope to make sure the knot does not come loose. Repeat the same steps on the other tree.

HANGING HAMMOCKS ON WALLS 

 

To hang your hammock on your walls, first you need to know you hammock's total length and then locate two walls that are directly across from each other, with a distance between them of at least the total length of your hammock (measured from loop to loop). Keep in mind the closer you hang the loops of the hammock together, the higher your hammock will need to be from the ground.

 

WARIMBA hammocks total length is between 145 and 170 inches approximately. To determine the distance you require to have between your walls, add an additional 20-25 inches to each side to the total length of the hammock. You will need to locate the wall studs, either by tapping or using a stud finder. When you determine where the studs are, it is critical that you find the midpoint of the studs, using a small drill bit to perforate the wall until you know where the stud begins and ends. Subsequently, measure between six and eight feet up from the floor on both walls to locate and mark the exact point where you will be drilling the holes. Drill one, two, three, or four holes (depending on the hooks you decide to use) into the wall beam and then use the ropes to link each hook to the loops of the hammock. Remember that by adapting the ropes, you can extend the reach of your hammock.  

 

Keep in mind that you would have to hang your hammock with a loose curvature so you can lie at an angle across it and get flat. This amount of curve will be determined by the distance between the two walls where you will be hanging your hammock and the total length of your hammock.
