For more than 20 years LA SIESTA has been specialising in hammocks, hammock chairs and suspension systems. Our vision is the perfect hammock, and even after more than 20 years in the business, we are still learning.
On the way to leadership in quality we have gotten to know countless of interesting products, technologies, materials, people and places. We would like to introduce some of them to you in our photo story.
The story of LA SIESTA started in a garage in Finthen, a suburb of Mainz in Germany.
Today’s managers of LA SIESTA (Maximilian, Leonid and Cornelius) used to play ball there every afternoon. One day, their parents (Dorothee and Alexander Grisar) had the idea to start importing hammocks from El Salvador. So the garage was converted into a warehouse. And so the hammock import business was started.
In the mid-nineties, there was increased demand for cotton hammocks, especially from kindergartens (preschools).
