Even today Colombian TROPILEX hammocks are still largely traditionally handmade. A dozen individual operations are required to make a high-qualityTROPILEX hammock. Most work steps are so demanding that they can only be completed by an adult with many years of training and experience. Despite this fact, we have continuous controls to ensure that no children are involved in the local production. Many people have secure jobs thanks to the production of TROPILEX hammocks in Colombia.
- We go to a lot of effort in selecting the correct threads. This includes stability, colorfastness but also lab tests to ensure they are free of harmful substances. To ensure environmental responsibility, we use recycled cotton in our Colombian hammocks.
- In the first work step, these threads must be wound around the beam of the weaving loom in the correct pattern.
- At the same time, the correct color threads are wound around the spindles for the woof threads.
- Now comes the hardest part: The weaving master, a highly esteemed professional, set up the weaving loom. Up to 6000 warp threads must be precisely knotted by hand: this takes him a whole day.
- Now the weaving can start: A good weaver can produce 5 to 20 hammocks a day on a weaving loom. The high number of threads and the “thrusting power” of the weaving loom determine the density of the hammock and thus its stability.
