From the brand
How we got our start?
The first Pawleys Island rope hammock was handcrafted by South Carolina riverboat captain Joshua John Ward in 1889, remains the heart of our brand even now, more than a century down the line. We’ve seen countless knockoffs of the design through the years, yet there’s only ever been one Original.
What makes our product unique?
Our promise to you remains the same today as it has been for more than 130 years now: craftsmanship, quality and tradition woven together in a slice of that relaxed live-oak lifestyle of the old coastal South, right there in your own back yard, wherever in the world your own back yard may be!
Why we love what we do?
It’s fundamental to us that our customers are able to trust us to support them and the ones they love in exceptional comfort, style and safety. Because if that ever changes, then our products are no longer good enough to bear the venerable Original Pawleys Island name.[DURACORD ROPE]: Synthetic blend that is soft as cotton with durability of polyester. This rope is All-Weather and resistant to rot, mold and mildew. DuraCord is the densest rope on the market resulting in less stretch and increased support when relaxing.[OAK SPREADER BAR]: Premium Oak hardwood that has been repeatedly hand-dipped in a honey gold marine-grade varnish for protection and longevity.[DOUBLE-LATCH WEAVE]:Individual ropes are handwoven to pull against each other to produce a lattice-like design, eliminating the need for knots within the rope bed. This also allows us to use almost twice the amount of rope in each hammock than most of our competitors.[ZINC PLATED HARDWARE]: We plate all our hardware, with zinc to protect against rust and ensure an overall longer outdoor life.[HANDCRAFTED IN THE CAROLINAS]: Assembled using the finest parts and industry leading techniques.
