Hammocks have long been associated with exotic countries, where the leaves of the palm trees softly rustle and relaxing is the motto. Experience this in your own home or garden by buying a hammock and totally come to rest whenever you see fit. We have a huge selection of hammocks available, varying from medium sized to extra large sized, where you can relax in together with your partner or kids. All our hammocks are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. When purchasing a hammock also take into account your own body length. Tall people can buy a wider size to guarantee optimal stability and body support. The distinction is made by size, carry weight capacity and of course the colours and designs. With all hammocks in our collection you will see mentioned specific characteristics like width, length and maximum carry capacity.

Traditional Vs Spreader Bar

The range offered by ‘Marañon‘ are authentic and are not equipped with a spreading bar. An authentic South American hammock gives better support to your body and has optimal stability.
Hammocks were originally introduced to Europe by the early explorers in the late 15th century. These hammocks where not equipped with spreader bars. As the early Europeans did not know how to lie in the traditional way (horizontally), they equipped them with wooden bars to spread them out like a traditional bed.

  • Traditional hammocks can be washed in the washing machine at a gentle cycle. This is more difficult with spreader bar versions.
  • You cannot easily fall out of traditional hammocks in contrast to the spreader bar ones.
  • Spreader bar hammocks do have the advantage that they can be hung at lower heights and shorter distances.
  • Traditional hammocks offer better support to your body and give optimal stability.
