Product and Material
Our raw material takes into account the region’s climate scenario – water scarcity – and produces yarns that do not undergo a dyeing process. In addition to maintaining the Guaranteed Purchase Agreement with the farmers, which generates commitment and economic and social development.
The products are exclusive pieces developed by weavers and artisans. Each weave is woven on mechanical and manual looms with handcrafted techniques that, in dialogue with design innovation, generate exclusive products for decoration aimed at a refined look at aesthetics and a commitment to sustainable development.
The Local Productive Arrangement includes traditional communities such as Quilombos and farmers in rural settlements.
Natural Organic Colored Cotton is the result of family farming, planted in agrarian reform settlements and in quilombola communities. It is grown from the purchase guaranteed, directly from the farmer, without the presence of commercial intermediaries, which guarantees a fair price for both the farmer and the buyer. It is born with color, does not need irrigation or dyeing, saving 87.5% of water compared to artificially colored fabrics. The fiber was developed by Embrapa Algodão through agroecological cultivation. In this system, it is not allowed to use insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and other industrialized chemical inputs capable of polluting the soil and water. With this, the farmer does not handle toxic products harmful to health and the environment.
Recycled Cotton is the answer to one of the main problems today: the generation of waste. Result of an industrial recycling process, cotton is shredded from leftovers and scraps from the clothing industry, already separated by color, avoiding dyeing and saving water in the process. This residue is used in the production of new yarns which, to gain strength, are spun again with yarn from PET bottles. Emerging a sustainable and resistant fabric. The energy savings in the production of recycled cotton is 76% and the reduction of CO2 emissions is 71%.
The parts of your hammock
Our hammocks are made up of many details! Shall we learn their name?
- Handle/Fist: This is the end of the net, where we hang it from the hook. The handle is 100% handmade by our artisans.
- Macramé rope: made with twists of the fabric itself, it joins the wrist and the mamucaba.
- Mamucaba: The mamucaba straps support the hammock. They are not mandatory, but the more mamucabas, the more weight the net can handle. The mamucabas are also made by hand.
- Body: The body of the net is made of ecological fabric produced on mechanical looms.
- Macramé finishes: The handmade macrame typology is made with the intertwining of threads forming various knots and designs.
- Fringe: The charm of the hammock! The balconies have several handcrafted typologies, such as macramé, crochet and others. All handmade.
