About Us

 

Mexican Hammocks Pty Ltd is an Australian Company owned and operated by  - Mike Rennie and Guy Halpinimporting and selling top quality handmade Mexican hammocks, accessories and Mexican Blankets to the United States, Canada and worldwide.

The hammocks we sell at Hammock Shop USA are all hand-woven by Mayan men and women in Yucatán, México. The work on hammocks is done in order to help supplement family income. Work is done at home where working conditions are much better and safer than in factories and also in a more environmenally friendly manner. 

This gives the weavers the opportunity to work and take care of their children at the same time. If they need or want to take a day off for medical, family or personal reasons, they do so without the need to ask anyone's permission or report to anyone. 

Completed hammocks are either delivered to our company representative or our representatives goes to their villages to collect.

We emply many weavers in remote village areas that don't often have many work opportunities. We belive in Fair Trade principles by paying and rewarding our workers fairly for their skillful hammock weaving. This shows through in the high quality of the hammocks they produce for us as our weavers are happy in their work.
