Handwoven Hammocks from El Salvador, Hand-Finished and Dyed in Brooklyn

April 27, 2018

Founded in 2017, Pouch NYC is a Brooklyn-based furniture design studio “in the business of reconceptualizing comfort,” Robert Ramirez, the founder and CEO says. “In collaboration with artisans in Chalate, El Salvador, the Pouch design team is working to reimagine the humble hammock. The aesthetic is based on a classic hammock style I grew up with in my childhood home—it was a gift to my father when he moved from El Salvador to the US in 1975. The Pouch hammocks have a slightly modified handwoven design, using the same traditional weave found in Central America.

“The hammocks are handwoven in San Salvador in a traditional native-style weave, using homemade, old-fashioned devices, and are finished in Pouch’s Brooklyn studio, where the custom woodworking, natural dyeing [courtesy of Fragmentario], and custom curtain work are completed.”

Here’s a look at the offerings.
