Island Hammock
Now sold around the world, the Original Pawley's Island Rope HammockŪ was created in 1889 at Pawley's Island, which remains one of the oldest summer resorts on the South Carolina coast. Credit for its invention is given to Captain Joshua John Ward, who found the grass-filled mattresses on his river boat too hot during the summer months

Captain Ward had several unsuccessful attempts, making uncomfortable hammocks, before stumbling across the familiar design that incorporates wooden spreaders and no knots. One century later, the design is still unsurpassed and the Original Pawley's Island Rope Hammock remains one of the most popular models.

Today's version of Captain Ward's hammocks use custom designed stretcher bars that are cut from seasoned, Carolina red oak. The bars are then steamed, bent, drilled, sanded and varnished, offering optimum stability and, more importantly, optimum comfort. The hammocks are available in the traditional, all-cotton rope or soft-spun polyester rope.
