Boldly patterned, supple + luxurious, these hamacas atadas are the last word as far as hammocks are concerned. Long the traditional bed of the guarayo indians, their design has been fine-tuned over centuries. Incorporating a series of successive pre-columbian techniques — from the spinning of the thread, to the weaving and braiding of the design, to the crocheted detailing of the sides — each hammock represents a month’s-worth of skilled craftsmanship by women in the remote village of urubicha in the bolivian amazon.
