At a full 10 inches wider than our large rope hammocks and with a weight limit of 450 pounds, our Presidential model means you can likely pile the whole dang family in if you want to! (Just realize that once the kids are swaying away in this bountiful thing, they may not want to stop.)
This Cadillac version of our cotton-rope classic is the very reason we make all of our rust-resistant zinc-plated hanging hardware so much larger and heavier than other hammock manufacturers do. The brunt of a hammock's stress falls on its chains and other hardware, so a hammock this roomy demands hardware that's equally oversized, and overly tough, as well.
Because what's relaxing about a hammock you can't trust to be safe, especially where your own kids are concerned? This Pawleys Island favorite promises a secure backyard-relaxation destination for you and all your family's possible future presidents as well!
Handcrafted in much of the same way for the last 130 years, our Cotton rope is comprised of 100% natural cotton yarns spun with precision twisting and balance. It takes our weavers an hour, along with 1,200 feet of cotton rope, to weave a single hammock.
Oak Spreader Bar
A wood that is naturally resistant to both rot and insect infestation, and has oils that repel water, Oak blends both exceptional strength and a handsome appearance. Our Oak spreader bars are repeatedly hand-dipped in honey-gold marine-grade varnish allowing a longer outdoor life and exceptional good looks. Our Oak spreader bars are a full 1 inch thick, compared to most other competitor’s spreader bars that measure at ⅞ inch. A thicker spreader bar allows more holes for rope, allowing the hammock bed to sit firmly on the hammock. Our spreader bars also feature countersink drilled holes. Countersink drilling is a technique that uses a trumpet drill bit that produces a hole with no hard angles, allowing the rope to pass through without any sharp edges to wear the rope.
All our Rope Hammocks are Handwoven by highly trained weavers that have mastered the technique of the Double-Latch Weave. This technique is best described when individual ropes pull against each other to produce a lattice-like design, thus eliminating the need for knots within the rope bed itself. We use 15% more rope than our competitors, which provides a sturdier hammock bed for complete relaxation.
We plate all our hanging hardware with Zinc Plated Coating, including both tree hooks that come standard with our hammocks. The zinc plated coating prevents the accumulation of rust and ensures a longer outdoor life. Our very own One-piece ring-knot and chain, a product of years of development, permanently attaches the chain to the O-ring. This produces a hammock that is more durable and most importantly makes it impossible to lose the chain.
Note: Don't worry if your own Original Pawleys Island® Rope Hammock at first seems a little shorter than its advertised length; your hammock will soon reach its full length through natural stretching from initial use.
