This cotton canvas hammock with wooden spreader bars is a simple design, perfect for summer relaxing in the shade of a tree.
From El Salvador in Central America, we’ve managed to find some beautiful cotton hammocks and hanging chairs. The wooden spreader bars make it a little easier to get into and get out of, though this still takes a little practice!
The best way we’ve found of using the hammock is to stand by the middle of the side of it, facing away, and then sit down into it before swinging your feet up and in at the same time as you turn through 90 degrees and lie down. Should you want to get up again, just do this in reverse, but we wouldn’t be in a rush to get up that soon.
Rated up to 140 kg, you will need to find a suitably sturdy combination of trees and walls to support this canvas hammock.
