Pawleys Island

Our Story

The Pawleys Island Hammocks story goes back to Carolina Low Country more than 130 years ago. Joshua John "Cap'n Josh" Ward, a river boat captain, simply wanted a good night's sleep during the sultry summers. He set out with some rope and wood, a little gumption and grit, and he soon fashioned what would become the basis for our company--the rope hammock--a hand woven bed, two wooden spreader bars, and a clew knot with a ring for hanging the hammocks. Pretty simple when you think about it.


Lil Shop O'Hammocks

Cool and comfortable, the remarkable rope hammock originally designed by Captain John Ward still soothes and delights all who discover its relaxing comfort. As the first retail store to sell the Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock, we continue our long standing tradition of only selling rope hammocks hand woven in the Carolinas. To see our hammocks handwoven daily, be sure to visit our Weaver’s Shed located next to our Retail Shop in Pawleys Island, SC.
