Additional suspension ropes
Using more suspension ropes gives the Colombian hammocks a larger canvas surface to lie on. The weight is being distributed better along the ropes which results in optimal relaxing comfort.
Moreover, the ropes are not fixed onto the hammock, but originate directly out of the hammock itself. Thus, the hammock gets its specific extra Tropilex look and there is up to 30% less chance that the ropes will snap.
Sturdy canvas which can cope with rainfall
The fabric of this hammock is made from 70% cotton, 30% polyester and is up to 20% thicker than other brands!
The cotton combined with the special patterns gives the hammock the ultimate soft character.
At the same time the polyester yarns ensure that the cotton gets not stretched too much. These hammocks can handle a rain shower. However, we do advise you to keep the hammock dry if not in use.
The canvas is woven up to 20% more tight compared to other hammocks. This provides extra comfort and makes the hammock extra sturdy.
Open suspension loop and larger surface
The suspension loop is open (Open-Loop) which makes it easy to hang the hammock everywhere.
The surface of the canvas is in general also larger than other brands. This without the total length of the hammock becoming longer. The dimensions of the lying surface are therefore completely adapted to the average height of European people.
The fabric is woven on special machines for the best result. Error margins are nil, and the quality is guaranteed.
Then the real craftsmanship begins. The large canvas is first carefully cut to size. Instead of sewing the suspension ropes onto the hammock, both ends are first loosened by average 30 cm and then braided into cords. The suspension ropes are hand knotted to these cords, also called 'cadejo'.
The cadejo gives the hammock the handmade 'look' it deserves, but above all extra strength and the hammock will unfold easier as well.
Matching storage bag / shopper
Each hammock from Tropilex comes with a matching bag. You can use this bag to store the hammock. The bag of the hammocks without spreader bar can even be used as a nice shopper!

We are Tropilex!
We think everyone should relax more, your body and mind deserves it. And with relaxing in a hammock you get a mini-holiday for free!
We do this by producing beautiful hammocks & hanging chairs. We prefer to produce as sustainably and honestly as possible.
Handmade & Fair Trade
Tropilex hammocks and hanging chairs are woven and finished by hand by traditional hammock weavers in Colombia and India.
For all Tropilex products, we monitor the production as closely as possible. We visit the factories ourselves, pay attention to the working conditions and double check the quality.
The wooden stands have their origins in well-managed Scandinavian forests and are produced in a special wood factory in Poland. Tropilex wooden stands are FSC certified.
The metal stands and hanging material are produced in China. Mostly in two small family companies with very friendly and good willing people 450 km (280 miles) from Shanghai.
We also try to find out as good as possible where the raw materials come from and under what conditions they are extracted.
We cannot make a difference everywhere and at all times, but doing nothing is not an option. We do this so you can relax with a good feeling in your new hammock!
1% For The Planet
We are proud to be a member of 1% For The Planet. We donate 1% of the Tropilex annual sales to environmentally friendly foundations.
80% of our Tropilex hammocks and hangingchairs are made from yarns that are certified by Oeko-Tex® 100.
Oeko-Tex® is among the world’s leading certifications for textiles, a so-called health certificate as the finished product is tested for hazardous substances. The criteria for Oeko-Tex® 100 are more rigorous than those set out by law and specifically concern the content of chemicals which can cause, or are suspected of causing, skin irritation, allergies, cancer, damage to the nervous system and internal organs, or reproduction. The list of considered chemicals is regularly updated and adapted.Oeko-Tex® 100 is a voluntary label controlled by the Oeko-Tex® Association which evaluates and sets the requirements for the product certification.
The wood we use for our products is FSC certified.
The FSC certification is considered the “gold standard” designation for wood harvested from forests that are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, environmentally conscious, and economically viable.
Environmentally friendly packaging
We try to pack our packages environmentally friendly with used boxes and reuse as much packaging material as possible!
That’s not always possible. But all the packaging and paper we use is made from FSC certified paper or from recycled paper.
