What is the advantage of this Original Pawleys Island 15OP Presidential Original Polyester Rope Hammock?
The Pawleys Island Hammocks story goes back to Carolina Low Country more than 130 years ago. Joshua John Ward, a river boat captain, simply wanted a good night s sleep during sultry summers. He set out with some rope and wood, a little gumption and grit and soon fashioned what would become the basis for our company the rope hammock a hand woven bed, two wooden spreader bars, a clew knot with a ring for hanging the hammock. Pretty simple when you think about it.
All hail the mighty spreader bar Possibly the greatest innovation of Original Pawleys Island founder Joshua John “Cap'n Josh” Ward, this compact wooden beam handsomely frames both ends of the classic American hammock. But it also does so much more
With our family-size Presidential hammock, you fully appreciate the crucial role of these hole-drilled bars of warmly varnished oak. Even as the hammock's ropes gently cocoon directly around your reclining body, that pair of spreaders holds this oversize beauty open wide, so you never feel uncomfortably confined. Instead, the sense is one of supreme support, yet with the freedom to just roll around and wallow. And let's face it, a little wallowing is just plain good for ya now and then

After years of evolution and experimentation, our Polyester rope has developed into a material that is not only soft to the touch but durable for any outdoor setting. It takes our weavers an hour, along with 1,200 feet of polyester rope, to weave a single hammock.
Oak Spreader Bar
A wood that is naturally resistant to both rot and insect infestation, and has oils that repel water, Oak blends both exceptional strength and a handsome appearance. Our Oak spreader bars are repeatedly hand-dipped in honey-gold marine-grade varnish allowing a longer outdoor life and exceptional good looks. Our Oak spreader bars are a full 1 inch thick, compared to most other competitor s spreader bars that measure at inch. A thicker spreader bar allows more holes for rope, allowing the hammock bed to sit firmly on the hammock. Our spreader bars also feature countersink drilled holes. Countersink drilling is a technique that uses a trumpet drill bit that produces a hole with no hard angles, allowing the rope to pass through without any sharp edges to wear the rope.
All our Rope Hammocks are Handwoven by highly trained weavers that have mastered the technique of the Double-Latch Weave. This technique is best described when individual ropes pull against each other to produce a lattice-like design, thus eliminating the need for knots within the rope bed itself. We use 15 more rope than our competitors, which provides a sturdier hammock bed for complete relaxation.
We plate all our hanging hardware with Zinc Plated Coating, including both tree hooks that come standard with our hammocks. The zinc plated coating prevents the accumulation of rust and ensures a longer outdoor life. Our very own One-piece ring-knot and chain, a product of years of development, permanently attaches the chain to the O-ring. This produces a hammock that is more durable and most importantly makes it impossible to lose the chain.
Note: Don't worry if your own Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock at first seems a little shorter than its advertised length your hammock will soon reach its full length through natural stretching from initial use.
Customer reviewsUpset with quality of polyester.
It only came with ONE hook, kind of a problem in these times. Truly upset of the quality of the polyester. It seems like it won t hold up to weather well. Rather bummed out to be honest. I m trying to compete with their hammock they made over 20 years ago, it s just not the same.
