About Us

Offering relax since 2003

The story of the Authentic World of Hammocks began in Mexico, when Jan and Amalur, after many years living and working with Doctors Without Borders in Latin American countries, decided to redirect their lives and "become independent". The hammocks seemed like an ideal article to them.

They both fell in love with hammocks on the Yucatan peninsula, what a fabulous invention! They were fascinated by the passion of the artisans, the love and dedication they put into their weaving, making every hammock a unique piece.

They were pioneers when in 2003 they opened an exclusive hammock and hammock shop in Barcelona, selling quality products and offering more than 80 models. The energy and enthusiasm of the beginnings was and still is the key.

They remember it like this:

We explored the market and found that there was a niche in the sector. We started without any commercial experience and both our friends and family thought we were out of our minds... A shop just selling hammocks ...Good Luck! After almost 16 years, we're still there!

The secret: The passion and love for something that brings so many beautiful things besides a good nap: disconnection, peace, pleasure, rest, relaxation... sometimes so scarce nowadays.

In the Authentic World of Hammocks there is a hammock for every person and any budget. And for those looking for something more exclusive, the shop has a unique collection in Europe of artisanal hammocks from 5 different countries, handmade, high quality and exclusive designs, no two are the same!

In addition to retailing, Jan and Amalur offer continuous technical service: they advise on the installation, repair and rent hammocks and even grant them to collaborate with special projects and TV productions!

In one of the most commercial streets of the Gràcia district, at Travessera de Gràcia 180 and next to one of the city's oldest markets, the Abacería, there is a world of hammocks to explore and enjoy!
