Hand woven Guatemalan Hammocks hand-picked by Roxanne and Justin during a recent trip to Guatemala

Humans may be prone to stay indoors when the temperatures drop…but the air outside is crisp and fresher than ever! Hang your hammock, bundle up with a blanket, grab an old read and relax outside this winter…

You’re officially invited to come to The Arch and take a look at beautiful handmade hammocks fresh from the villages of Chichicastenango and Antigua, Guatemala.  Natural rope-woven hammock with a pop of color are available for $50 and the hand-woven full-length color textile hammocks can brighten any home or yard for $90. They really are gorgeous!

Places to hang your hammock: Between 2 trees (classic), under a covered porch, on a hammock stand, from sturdy beams inside, or in a real pinch- between 2 cars with the rope ends clamped inside the doors!
