The "chinchorros," made by the indiginous of the dessert of La Guajira are considered as the real jewels of the crown. These handmade, family size hammocks are in all senses the most elaborated and impressive hammocks. It can take the artesanas between 2 and 6 month of very specialized handwork to finish one of these beautifull hammocks, depending on the techniques applied.
The technique used in this hammock is the Süi Patuwash, a double woven hammock which are woven to protect against the dessert´ morning colds.
Los chinchorros of the Wayuu are our most expensive hammocks but considering the handlabour, high quality and the absolute exclusivity of every chinchorro explains it all: a collectors item that will last (more than) a lifetime!
