Acrylic yarn is one of the main reasons that these hammocks are so special and different to all of the other hammocks available in the Australian market.
It is a special material that has been designed specifically for our hammocks.
It’s benefits include, weather fastness, colour fastness, super strength and unbelievably soft comfort.
It is also works well with dye resulting in the deep and vibrant colours you see in our designs.
A skilled Lahu weaver spends many hours and days carefully creating every loop by hand – using up to 4km of yarn in each hammock.
The thousands of loops allow air to flow through the material keeping you at the perfect temperature when lazing in your hammock.
There are no other hammocks worldwide that come close in comfort or style and West Coast Hammock Co. is the only authorised supplier in Australia.

About 30 Years ago a Swiss textile engineer named Peter Schmid was riding through the hills of North Thailand on his motocross bike.
He came into contact with the local hill tribe communities and was impressed by their outstanding skills in crochet weaving the most intricate patterns by hand.
In an inspired moment he decided to teach them how to weave hammocks, a skill previously unknown in Thailand.
Since then he has spent many years teaching hill tribe people in northern Thailand how to make hammocks and helping them find markets for their products.
To learn more about this fascinating story read here.
Each and every hammock created brings much needed employment to the Lahu weavers that create them.
The project first started 30 years ago when a Swiss textile engineer was off roading on his motorcycle in Northern Thailand and stumbled across the local hill tribe people.
He was impressed by their weaving abilities and later had the lightbulb moment to marry their skill with his love for hammocks and textiles.

Overjoyed with my West Coast Hammock Co. Hammock!!!!! Incredibly soft and comfortable!!! And HUGE!!! Serious quality and amazing value for money xx
I am the lucky new owner of a double hammock and I absolutely LOVE it! My husband surprised me with this for Xmas and was so impressed with your company – from the website, to the prompt service and communication and I am just so happy with the quality of my hammock. It’s soft and luxurious, it’s incredibly well made and the tree safe straps are wonderful. I am also really happy to know that they’re ethically made.
I am looking forward to whiling away the hours with a book under my trees and letting the stresses of the day disappear.
I happened across West Coast Hammocks by luck – driving past their home base on my Vespa one day, on my way into the city. The display hammock in their front yard caught my eye and I turned around immediately. It was beautiful and big and looked exactly like what I imagined when I imagined the “perfect hammock”. Even though I had been thinking of getting a decent hammock for a while, we had been regularly disappointed with hammocks we had either purchased or been given in the past. Nothing seemed to last our family’s demands – 4 teenagers and a wife who all want to “have a go” and sometimes more than one at a time – for more than a single season, before deteriorating or ripping. My fear was that there really wasn’t a hammock that would suit our needs, in a price range that was within our means.
Anyway, I called the mobile number that was on the sign near the display hammock and expected to be told the hammock I had seen would be somewhere in the $350+ price range. When Keith told me it was under $250 I was very skeptical of the quality. I was told to check out the website and invited to come back to home base and try out some of their stock.
The products on website looked incredible and the range and pricing was hard to believe, and we all know how cheap it is to pay someone to make a swanky website that over promises and under delivers. I needed to see these hammocks in person so I arranged to meet Keith at the home base to see them (and test them for myself). It took me about 5 mins of seeing, feeling, and sitting in, to be sold on one these hammocks – I walked out with one of the VWeave big boys, and had a couple of the straps thrown in for good measure.
Since then, we have set the hammock up by the pool, as well as taking it to Albany with us on a recent christmas holiday. The hammock has regularly had 2 of our teenagers in it at a time, and my wife and I (I’m 100kg and the hammock doesn’t even wince when I come near it!) often sneak outside to grab a few minutes respite from the rest of the family.
All I can say is WOW! Everyone who sees our WCH, and tries it, wants one – especially when they hear the price. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and will probably invest in another one soon too.
West Coast Hammock Co is a fantastic company and a wonderful project. I have a beautiful hammock that is of a very high quality of hand work. The colours are radiant and the thread very soft to touch. After placing my order I was given regular updates of the location of the hammock. My hammock arrived within 4 days and is a beautiful feature in our outdoor area and a great stop for relaxing. I highly recommend this company and have been really happy to support the traditional work of hammock making and the support West Coast Hammock Co. has given to the Thai people making these hammocks.
Received my VWeave hammock today- in plenty of time for an Easter holiday- however looking at how nice it is, I’m not sure I want to take it to a caravan park though. Bit of backwards and forwards sorting out availability but in the end the hammock arrived right on time, nicely packaged in a draw string bag. Looks fantastic and very comfortable, much better than the woven fabric variety I bought from the local outdoors store. The tree friendly straps are good quality as well- in their own bag with instructions printed on them. They will definitely get used on holiday.
I love my super jumbo. The hardest thing is to get my wriggling son out of it so I can relax!
Thank you so much for our awesome hammock. My husband loves his Christmas present. Even Kora our grandpuppy loves it
