Brazil is the world's 6th largest manufacturer of commercial aircraft, but after a few minutes in the Byer of Maine Brazil Hammock Chair, you'll have no doubt that they are on the cutting edge of hammock-tech. The simple and indulgent design of this hammock chair uses a woven textile body to create a deep and supportive sling that fits almost anyone. The material is made from recycled cotton and polyester, and is offered in a range of rich colors. A wooden spreader bar keeps the seat open allowing for free and easy movement, while the hand-tied knots offer years of reliable use. The body is designed for outdoor use, but this luxurious hammock is just as appropriate indoors.
Founded in 1880 by a Russian immigrant family, Byer Manufacturing began as a company that made slippers and textile products. In 1925 they began crafting wood frame folding cots and by the 1950s the company was focused on producing knapsacks, duffels, and continued to build cots for both military and civilian uses. In 1999, the current owner visited the outdoor furniture show for Europe, the Spoga Trade Fair, and was introduced to the beautiful and colorful world of Brazilian hammocks. Over the years, Byer Manufacturing began to make more hammocks and hanging chairs, as well as cots, stools, camp furniture, and much more. Sourcing products from all over the world, Byer Manufacturing remains committed to the same quality and passion that began their company over 100 years ago.
