Our Paradiso Hammocks for Family Use from Amazonas are high-quality
Brazilian hammocks made in the traditional South American
style. South America is where hammocks first originated.
Whoever spreads out in our XXL Paradiso hammocks can call
themselves a true hammock connoisseur. There is also plenty
of room for the children and friends in our extra-large,
strong Paradiso hammock range. We have 5 colourful hammock
designs to choose from. You will need to decide how you
wish to support your new hammock. The classic place to put
your hammock is between 2 trees, but ideally placed trees
are not always available, in which case, you can use one
tree together with our special Madera support, or use one
of our free-standing hammock supports - ideal for patios.
We also supply wall fixtures for attaching hammocks to walls
or posts, indoors and outside. We also stock matching cushions
and protective covers. Our Paradiso hammock range is manufactured
by a company called Amazonas and originates from from the
Creara region in the North East of Brazil where hammock
making has a long tradition - the production of our high-quality
hammocks provides over 100 people with secure jobs, at above-average
wages. All Paradiso hammocks have a lying surface of 250 x 160cm, an overall length of 360cm, and can support loads up to 200kg (32 stone).
Each of our Paradiso hammocks are supplied with
a FREE matching
Hammock Bag, made from the same stylish and
durable material from which the hammock itself is
made. What's more, the hammock bag is extremely-well
manufactured, so it won't fall apart - in fact when
you open your package, the bag alone will tell you
what a high quality product this is!
Paradiso hammocks have a maximum load capacity of
200 Kg (32 Stone) - a very high figure for a hammock,
which reflects the quality of materials and workmanship
of our Paradiso hammock range.
|How to lie in a hammock: The most important thing is to arrange the hammock's
suspension loops at head height, and only some 3m distant from each other, thereby
allowing the hammock to hang down in a deep arc. This then allows a diagonal lying
position, like a real Brazilian ("from corner to corner"), and not straight. This
keeps the back straight and is the secret of being able to lie comfortably and
relaxed for hours on end in a hammock. As wobbly wooden cross-pieces are intentionally
not used, one lies securely and without fear of falling out! In Brazil, hammocks
are still used as beds, as they always have been. This is the reason that they
are as wide and comfortable as a bed! Even if you are only going to use your hammock
for relaxation, you should still try to adopt the Brazilian way of lying: Contrary
to European ideas, hammocks are not hung taut.
Do I need hammock accessories? If you just buy the hammock itself, you
will need to provide a means to support the hammock yourself. At each end of your
hammock you will find a hard-wearing loop, woven from the gathering of hammock
threads. The simplest do-it-yourself support is made from a piece of rope, threaded
through each end-loop, and then tied to a tree, post or wall bracket. If you prefer
to simplify things, we stock a full range of easy to fit supports - from free-standing
hammock frames (ideal for the patio), to tree ropes and wall fixings. We also
stock matching pillows and hammock covers, ideal for prolonging the life of your
hammock if you keep it permanently outside.
