To catch a glimpse of this nautically colored hammock through your kitchen window on a breezy day is to get a flickering sense of the sun-flecked Atlantic Ocean. The bright striped design recalls the shifting light playing across the surface of the shallows, dark, then light, then blue, then green, with the hammock's natural sway hinting at the ebb and flow of tides, in, out, back, forth, ahhhhh …
So while we can't bring the actual Carolina coast home to you, wherever you may be, this lovely handmade hammock may nonetheless help convince you that you've just drawn a welcome whiff of delicious salt air right there in our own back yard!
The Original Pawleys Island® Beaches Stripe Large Quilted Hammock is two layers of our own industry-leading all-weather, solution-dyed synthetic DuraCord® fabric lockstitched over a 1-inch center of plush, resilient, nonabsorbent polyester fiberfill batting to create 18 individual pillowy cushions running the length of the hammock bed.
DuraCord® is not only fast-drying, but is also resistant to rot, mold, mildew and staining, as well as being the industry's most colorfast fabric with a softness recalling cotton.
Hammock spreader bars are solid Southern white oak that's been hand-dipped multiple times in marine-quality spar varnish, to heighten the handsome hardwood's natural honey-gold hue.
The ropes attaching the hanging hardware to the hammock bed are also made from DuraCord®; we precision-wind all of our own rope ourselves, to exceed even the U.S. military's exacting specifications for strength. Hanging hardware, including chains, is zinc-plated steel, for a further boost in strength, and for heightened rust protection.
As weather-tough as a Pawleys Island® Hammock is, we do still strongly advise storing it in an enclosed dry place away from harsh chemicals and foraging wildlife when the hammock is going unused, or during lengthy stretches of bad weather, to help prolong this product's useful life.
