Mexican Hammocks Ltd is a New Zealand Company owned and operated by Mike Rennie since 2007. Based in the Wellington region importing and selling top quality authentic handmade Mexican hammocks, chair hammocks, hammock stands, accessories along with Mexican blankets, Baja hoodies, Ponchos and more.
The hammocks we sell are all hand-woven by Mayan men and women in the state of Yucatán, México. The work on hammocks is done in order to supplement their family income. Since the work is done at home, working conditions are better than in factories and more environmentally friendly. In this way the women and men can work and take care of their children at the same time. If they 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. When they have finished the hammocks, they deliver them to our company representative or our representative goes to their village to collect.
We employ many weavers in remote village areas that don't often have many work opportunities. We believe in Fair Trade principles by paying and rewarding our workers fairly for their skillful hammock weaving. This shows through in the high quality of our hammocks they produce as our weavers are happy in their work.
Mexican Hammocks Ltd aims to provides New Zealanders with superior quality hammocks at affordable prices. We want to provide our clients with a unique online experience through an easy to use and informative online store. We strive to improve the lives of the local native Mayan Community by providing sustainable employment and fair working conditions.
