Home of the Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock since 1938. Cool, comfortable and sturdy, this remarkable rope hammock designed by riverboat Captain Joshua John Ward still soothes and delights all who discover it. Always hand woven, our hammocks have long been the embodiment of South Carolina craftsmanship. Under the same local family ownership since 1978, The Original Hammock Shop continues to offer the classic Cotton rope hammock as well as the best selling weather resistant DuraCord rope hammock – both proudly 100% Made in the USA.
Pawleys Island Original Rope Hammocks are the hammocks to which all others are compared. The Pawleys Island Deluxe Polyester Rope Hammock is crafted of durable soft polyester rope. As comfortable as cotton with the added benefit of longer outdoor durability.
Once the hammock body is woven, it is connected to strong plaited ends and then strung through the oak stretcher bars. Nautical bowline knots attach the ends to the body of the hammock. Upon final inspection, each hammock is marked with the traditional metal tag to ensure its authenticity as an Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock®.
At The Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock, we're incredibly proud to be anything but new-fangled. Now 120 years old and counting, we continue to offer the very best of our past in hopes it may help our customers better enjoy their own futures. Tradition, after all, demands nothing less.
