The Samba Hammock is an ideal hammock at a great price. From the Brazilian Amazonas range, this hammock is 1.6 metres wide which means you can lie across it “Brazilian style”.

The material used is high quality  400 g/m²  double hammock material. It is of a highly durable design, with the ends stitched four times, to make it sturdy and long lasting.

The Samba Hammock is available in four colours, which are: Delfino,  Dorada, Rubin and Saphir.

Measurements:

  • Lying surface:  230 x 160cm
  • Total length: 340 cm
