About NicaSwings Handmade Nicaraguan Hammocks Hammock Production Photos

The Red and White Nicaraguan Handmade Hammock will be a beautiful and unique addition to your backyard. The hammock features deep red and natural white yarns from Masaya, Nicaragua. The spreader bar is also handmade in Masaya. These Nicaraguan hammocks are incredibly comfortable and will transport you to the beach as you relax in your own backyard.

This hammock, and all hammocks at NicaSwings.Com, are handmade by ladies living in Project Chacocente.
The beautiful red and white hammocks are handmade by Karen (left) and Rosaura (right). Karen and Rosaura meet at Rosaura's house every day to make the hammocks. They generally work from 8 am until 5 pm, stopping to help cook for their families and attend to other family duties. On average it takes 4 days to make one complete hammock.

Karen is married to Juan Carlos who is employed by the Project as a Family Coordinator. They have four daughters who attend Chacocente Christian School. The money she makes from the sale of hammocks is a huge blessing and helps support their family.

Rosaura is a beautiful lady with an incredible spirit. She lived in the Managua city dump for over 5 years before moving to Project Chacocente. Sadly, she was married at age 12 and had her first child at age 13. Now the mother of 6 and grandmother of 6, Rosaura continues to work hard to provide for herself and her family.

All the ladies take extreme pride in their hammocks and it shows in the quality of their work. Remember, at NicaSwings.Com you are getting a great Nicaraguan handmade hammock at a fair price, and all the money goes back to these ladies and the Chacocente Christian School. The maintenance and operation of this website are donated so every penny goes back to these deserving families.

(If you place the hammock between two trees, we recommend
Stansport Hammock Tree Straps, sold by Amazon.com. If you need to use a hammock stand, we recommend the 15 foot Hammock Stand, sold by Best Choice Products.)
