Venezuelan Special Hammocks

We proudly present the hidden treasures of hammock world!

In Venezuela, a distinction is made between chinchorro and hammock, which is based on the type of point used. While in the first the fabric is made open, in the second a dense weave is woven like a cloth.
Knitting hammocks and chinchorros is for indigenous women or peasants throughout the country one of the most important sources of income in their domestic economy.
In the Andes, Mérida and Táchira the wool is woven to make hammocks.
Towards the east, mainly in the Indian villages of the Delta, moriche is used to create the chinchorros.
In the Authentic world of hammocks we offer you the hammocks of Tintorero, made with cotton thread, the moriche hammocks and those of curagua.
Tintorero, a small town near Barquisimeto, is where the best hammocks of Venezuela are woven with the cotton wick thread. Each hammock is unique.
Tintorero, declared Cultural Heritage of the country, is known for the sale of handicrafts, especially the weaving that is started by the natives who used cotton to weave hammocks and hammocks. Tintorero owes its name to the ink, which has been used to dye the threads and fabrics that the inhabitants of this town create, the variety of colors used by the craftsmen made this name an excellent application. Many years ago it was woven with sheep wool, today that has changed and the thread is worked.
It turns out that its magnificent history, how the fabric was introduced and how generations of violinists were established in the town, is narrated by anyone who lives there or produces handicrafts, as many of the inhabitants of Tintorero are heirs or relatives of Sixto Sarmiento , a great weaver and founder of the traditions that still remain in this corner.
Words of Laura Sarmiento, granddaughter of Sixto Sarmiento is the artisan with whom we currently collaborate and she brings us the beautiful hammocks of Tintorero that we offer you:
