Located on the famous Flower Market of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The Marañon Hammocks shop has been in existence since 1981. With more than three decades of experience in the industry, the shop only provides shoppers with the most reliable and comfortable hammocks, mosquito nets, and accessories. All the items are shipped from Amsterdam and these are guaranteed to be of first class quality.
There are two things that experts advise when you are shopping for a hammock. When purchasing one, you need to pay close attention to the width and the number of tension ropes.
The Width of the Hammock
The width is relevant to provide you with comfort and ensures durability. With a wide hammock, you can use it at an angle, diagonal, or perhaps across, allowing your body to spread out the hammock. This enables you to lie flat for better support and even weight distribution, making it truly comfortable when lying down.
If your height is up to 1.75 m (5’9”), the most suitable width is at least 165 cm (65 inches). For those who are up to 1.95 m (6’5”), wider hammocks with at least 185 cm (73 inches) are recommended. For taller individuals, more than 1.95 m (6’5’’), the Rainbow Gigante Hammock with a width of at least 195 cm (76 inches) is the best hammock for optimum comfort. With its size, the Rainbow Gigante is very comfortable for two average-sized persons. It is available in sand/white and ecru/white colours.
Due to huge demands from the public we are also introducing the hammocks for small spaces. This collection is called the Hammock Shorty and features short but spacious hammocks without compromising comfort. These indoor hammock models are perfect for balconies, small rooms, or even on board boats and ships.
The Number of Hammock Tension Ropes
Aside from the width, you will also need to check the number of tension ropes. Be sure to look at the number of cords at both ends of the hammocks. For durability and strength, make sure that the finish is impeccable because this will bear most of the weight. As a rule, the more cords the better.
At Marañon Hammocks, our hammocks have a carrying capacity of about 220 kg (440 lbs) with 24 double ropes at each side of the hammock. Our XL Hammocks have a 250 kg (551 lbs) weight capacity while the Rainbow Gigante features a 300 kg (661 lbs) weight capacity, both with 30 double ropes at each side of the hammock. The weight capacity, width, and number of tension ropes are all detailed on the individual product pages here on the site. You will also find single Hammocks with 120 kg (265 lbs) capacity such as the Yaguas (M) and the Hawaiana series.
Other Hammock Bestsellers:
Rainbow Hammock Collection
We all love the summer. Thus, worth mentioning is the truly successful Rainbow Hammock Collection.
These Brazilian hammocks are the most extensive hammock series available in rhythmic colour combinations and 100% made of cotton.With macramé endings between the cloth and the ropes, you are guaranteed extra strength and durability.
Available as Baby Hammocks up to the super big XXL Gigante sizes. The Rainbow Hammocks have a weight capacity uo to 200-300 kg.
You can also check out the best-selling Alu Arc Hammock Stand made of anodized aluminium.
The good thing about aluminium as a stand for hammocks is that it can easily be disassembled or assembled compared to wooden frames. The frame is very sturdy, resistant to rust and deformation and the bolts are made of stainless steel. These hammock stands are perfect for large gardens, hotels, terraces and even on beaches.
Another heavy favourite is the colourful Lazy Rezt XL hanging chair collection.
These cotton-made, colourful hanging chairs can be fixed on a wooden beam or a tree very easily. Every hanging chair comes with a wooden spreader and matching bag. Matching cushion covers (as seen in the picture above) can also be ordered.
Finally, we have the exotic Wayuu Hammocks. These handwoven/quilted hammocks are made by the indigenous Indians of the La Guajira desert. These heirloom pieces are full of rich history and considered to be the real jewels of the crown.
