About Pawleys Island Hammocks
Hammocks have been around for hundreds of years. Some of the first accounts are as early as the 13th century when Columbus sailed the seas, but they’ve probably been around for many years beforehand. Fast forward a couple years to the 1880’s where riverboat Captain Joshua John Ward wasn’t very fond of sleeping in a hot canvas hammock every muggy, South Carolina night on his ferry headed to and from Pawleys Island. It was rough, cramped, hard to get into, and not to mention prone to tipping. Enter the idea for the rope hammock.
