Woven from recycled yarn.
The word "cotton" evokes associations with nature, the good old days, quality and tradition. However, it's also true that cotton production puts a great strain on the environment: just 2.4 % of the world's arable land is planted with cotton, yet the crop is heavily dependent on pesticides and accounts for approximately 25 % of the world's pesticide market. What's more, each ton of cotton produced uses up a staggering 18,000 litres of freshwater.
That's why having fewer cotton plantations means more life-giving water and fewer pesticides and insecticides for our environment.
In the light of such figures, it is even more painful that remnants of this so dearly obtained material are discarded during textile production and – in most cases – simply thrown away. Amazonas uses a straightforward technique to turn these remnants back into yarn.
That's why we produce our hammocks this way – and help preserve the world's natural resources and protect the environment.
