The luxurious family hammock Bossanova in bordeaux, made of organic cotton, is extra-large, soft and comfortable.

The large number of suspension cords ensures optimal weight distribution and excellent comfort. The organic cotton is soft to the touch and yet easy to clean.

LA SIESTA supports the project “Dito Escolinha” in the Brazilian city of Fortaleza. For each Bossanova sold, LA SIESTA donates 5€ to the German charity “Tor zur Hoffnung (=Gateway to Hope) which provides Dito’s beach soccer academy with training equipment, learning aids and much more.
Traditional cloth hammock for one or more people. Tip: It’s most comfortable when lying diagonally – giving your back the best possible support and opening the hammock with your body.
Cotton from organic cultivation
Fair to humans, fair to nature: Organic cotton is not only an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional cotton, it is also as soft to the touch and as easy to clean.This product complies with the EU regulation on organic production 834/2007.
Elaborate, handmade macramé is the special characteristic of high-quality Brazilian hammocks. Artfully connecting the warp threads creates an even distribution of weight and an unequalled feeling of utter weightlessness.
The hand-woven fringes are the trademark quality feature of hammocks from Brazil.The “Veranda” tradition is a matter of pride especially in the workshops in the northeast of Brazil.
Many suspension cords
The number of suspension cords contributes to the comfort and durability of your hammock or hammock chair: The more cords there are, the more even the distribution of weight – providing a feeling of utter weightlessness!
Support street children in Brazil
By buying this hammock you are supporting the street kids project “Dito Escolinha” in Brazil in the amount of 5 Euros. Click here for more information: www.lasiesta.com/dito.
The distance necessary between the two suspension points can be determined by a simple rule of thumb: The suspension height (y) should be approximately one half of the suspension distance (x). If the distance between the suspension points is greater, the hammock must be mounted somewhat higher.
Hammock between two trees
Depending on the size of your hammock, the trees must be at least 3 meters apart and strong enough to bear the weight. In order to mount the hammock between two trees, a rope is looped around the tree trunk and attached to the hammock.
Hammock between two walls
Weight bearing and solid walls are suitable for mounting hammocks. The MultiSpot is especially simple and safe, distributing the weight over three drilled holes.
When you lay in the hammock diagonally, your body expands the surface area so the fabric does not constrict. In the diagonal position, there is optimal support of the back and pressure is removed from the spine. This position also makes rocking more pleasant.
This hammock can be machine-washed: delicate cycle 30 °C (86 °F)!
Bind the cords together
Bind the suspension cords together before washing to avoid tangling. The Brazilian macramé can be protected by using a mesh wash bag.
Do not tumble dry!
In order to preserve your product, line dry. Do not machine dry.
Protect from abrasion
Ensure that your hammock swings freely and does not rub on the ground.
Remove at night
Cotton hammocks are susceptible when exposed to constant moisture. Therefore, take the hammock down in the evening to protect it from overnight dampness. Keep in mind that a hammock that has become damp needs adequate air circulation to dry.
Keep dry during winter
We recommend cleaning and thoroughly drying the hammock before the winter season. After it is completely dried, store the hammock in plastic to protect from vermin.
