Hatteras Hammock: overview of Hatteras hammocks
Hatteras Hammocks and Pawley's Island Hammocks are two of the best known hammock brand names, and both are manufactured by The Hammock Source headquartered in Greenville, North Carolina. The Pawley's Island Hammock has a signature "bent" or "curved" oak spreader bar and a distinctive brass nameplate, while the Hatteras Hammock has a straight spreader bar and brands the logo on the oak bar with a wood burning brand.

Both hammocks, however, use the same high quality materials, including solid oak spreaders and specially made three ply rope available in cotton or polyester.

Hatteras Hammocks® was founded in 1971, after company founder Walter Perkins Jr. began selling hammocks he had purchased on business trips out of the trunk of his car. Perkins took apart one of the hammocks in his garage, fixated on improving its design.

"This was a perfect example of a hobby becoming a business," Perkins said. The first of Mr. Perkins' new "Hatteras Hammocks" were sold to friends in Greenville, NC, while others were taken down to the coast of North Carolina and sold to visitors in that area.

By 1987, Hatteras Hammocks® had become the largest rope hammock manufacturer in the world. Today, Hatteras Hammocks® continues to be the industry leader with continuous additions to its innovative product line that include hammocks, stands, swings, and hammock accessories, as well as state of the art improvements to its manufacturing capabilities.
