We are Tropilex
Relaxing in a hammock means getting a mini-holiday for free!
Tropilex manufactures beautiful hammocks & hanging chairs. We prefer to produce as sustainably and honestly as possible.
Hand woven hammocks
Tropilex hammocks and hanging chairs are woven and finished by hand by traditional hammock weavers in Colombia, Brasil and India. It's a real pleasure to work with those companies to design and produce the Tropilex hammocks and hanging chairs.
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.
We 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 take care so you can relax with a good feeling in your new Tropilex hammock or hanging chair!

Oeko-Tex® is among the world’s leading certifications for textiles. The criteria for Oeko-Tex® 100 are more rigorous than those set out by law and specifically concern the content of chemicals. The list of considered chemicals is regularly updated and adapted.
Our Oeko-Tex® 100 certified products can be recognized by the Oeko-Tex® mention in the product specifications.
The wood we use for our hammock and hanging-chair stands 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.
The FSC® organization works to take care of our forests and those who rely on them: by protecting plant and animal species, Indigenous Peoples rights, forest workers’ safety, and much more.
Our FSC®-certified products can be recognized by the FSC® mention in the product specifications.
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.
