If you love fabrics ánd if you know how to relaxed, you probably love hammocks and hanging chairs as well. As WE love fabrics, especially environmentally friendly fabrics, we have story for you about Tropilex hammocks. These colorful handmade Hammocks are produced in South America.
Here you read all about the beautiful hammocks and the best thing you can do: buy fair fabrics ánd products only!
Hand woven is the key!
The Tropilex hammocks and hanging chairs are hand-woven. You can see it on the pictures: truly handwork: woven and finished by hand by traditional hammock weavers in Colombia, Brasil and India. To ensure the quality of the hammocks ánd the fair-trade about the production, Tropilex is monitoring the process closely.
At Sewing Chanel-Style we LOVE hand woven fabrics. We are sewing Chanel-Style jackets and use these beautiful Bouclé fabrics all the time. The couture Bouclé fabrics are hand woven as well. Hand woven is something which is giving an extra feeling to the fabrics.
As we all know 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 hammocks are quality ánd offer a nice range abut colors and style. But it is not only about fabrics, there is the wood as well. The wood for the 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.

Hammocks and hanging chairs
