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.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
