Story Behind the Art: Antonio Jose, from Hammock Artisans of Ceara, has been making hammocks for over 20 years. This now allows him to offer work to over 100 women from the area. The hammock's main body is woven on a loom, and then it is distributed among groups of women to finish. They usually work from home so they may continue looking after their children. Many of the women have taught their techniques to their daughters and granddaughters, thus ensuring the hammock-making tradition is kept alive.

This comfortable addition to my lazy summer evenings was just what I was looking for. I wished there were some color selections but the quality of the chair is great. There is no hardware (or rope) to hang it, so prepare for that before it gets there so you can use it as soon as it arrives.
