Venezuelan Hammocks

Venezuela has an ancient tradition of hammock making.  Today, indigenous tribes people in several areas still make the intricate hammocks, which take months to produce.  These are expensive artifacts in their home country and not easy to export.  The hammocks on this page are absolutely authentic hand crafted artifacts, and, for two of the styles, are still crafted from palm fiber.

Curagua Indigenous Hammock

Curagua Indigenous Hammock

The Venezuelan Curagua is a supreme example of traditional handicraft. Each hammock is woven in the Aguasay district from fibers laboriously twisted from the dry branches of the curagua, washed with blue soap, and left to dry in the Sun for one day. Then the fibers are joined and elaborated by a process of bunching or rolling, and finally, are spun into thread. This process alone, for one hammock takes weeks.  Once the spinning is complete the weaving can take up to 10 hours a day for months to produce a hammock as delicate as a spiders web and as fresh smelling as new mown hay.  Yet for all that this hammock is sturdy, as well as comfortable and beautiful.

Moriche Orinoco Grande

Moriche Orinoco Grande

In the jungles of the Orinoco basin in Venezuela tribal artisans of the Warao still ply the ancestral trades. The hammocks crafted there are among the most magnificent on the earth. The hammock under discussion here is made exclusively and entirely of the fronds of the Moriche palm tree.  The men cut the palm fronds and bring them to the women, who peel the fibers, boil them, and skillfully twist them into the cording for these magnificent hammocks.  The weave style is more like that of the Inca than the Maya, what is called sprang or open weave.  The characteristic of the palm fiber is its smoothness and suppleness. These hammocks mold to your body with a sensuous caress and the grassy aroma of the jungle. These hammocks are perfectly at home in the man cave, the covered patio, or the bedroom.  Traditionally these are lifetime hammocks, and at the end of that life, the burial shroud for their inhabitants.  These hammocks contain no commercial products of any kind.  The decorative stripes utilize natural dye from bark and herb from the locale.
