SlowBack hammocks are handmade by a selected group of craftsman in the region of Yucatan, Mexico. Slowback uses only natural, environmental friendly and regional materials. Our hammocks are a piece of the finest craftsmanship and one of the most valuable treasures of Mexico. We manufacture Slowback hammocks using a traditional technique called Mallas – that was developed by the Mayans hundreds of years ago. Mallas is known for its countless, interwoven cotton threads, which make the hammock extremely airy and exceptionally comfortable at the same time. We at Slowback are using the highest number of threads possible. Therefore our hammocks provide a comfortable tight net that moulds itself to the shape of your body and gives you a perfect lying position without any tension on the spine.
