The use of hammocks as a sleeping arrangement for babies has been around for centuries, and the design of the Nature's Sway baby hammock was inspired by these traditional hanging fabric beds used in various cultures around the world, like India, Southeast Asia and others.
The concept of baby hammocks originated in tribal communities, where mothers used to tie a piece of cloth up to whatever they could find to create a hammock for their babies. This simple design provided a comfortable sleeping environment that mimicked the feeling of being held, rocked, and swayed, which helped the babies sleep soundly.
Over time, the use of baby hammocks spread to other cultures and countries, and the design evolved. In India, baby hammocks are known as 'jhoola,' and they are made with cotton or silk fabric that is soft and breathable. The hammocks are often decorated with colourful patterns and designs, making them visually appealing.
Similarly, in Southeast Asia, baby hammocks are commonly used in countries like Thailand and Indonesia. The hammocks are usually made from natural fibres like cotton or bamboo, and they are designed to be lightweight and portable.
The Nature's Sway baby hammock takes inspiration from these traditional designs, using natural materials to create a comfortable and secure sleeping environment for babies. Nature’s Sway hammocks are made from 100% cotton or a certified organic cotton/hemp blend, and wool and are designed to be breathable and hypoallergenic.
