Shopping: Traditional Yawalapiti hammocks for the rustic home

The women of the Yawalapiti Tribe, an indigenous community in the Brazillian Amazon, are expert weavers of traditional hammocks — or chinchorros, as they are known in Venezuela — made of buriche palm fibre and supple cotton.



Dyed in bold hues and featuring unique patterns and fringes, these chinchorros make the perfect finishing touch for a playful and outdoorsy apartment. Purchasing these would also empower the tribe and raise awareness of its excellent craftsmanship, ensuring financial viability for the community.
