Tío Antonio Hammocks

A sturdy purchase

Upon entering the Tío Antonio school, you'll be surprised by the image of a blind boy weaving the cotton for a future hammock. This centre has contained an occupational workshop since 2008, which provides employment for people with disabilities. At present, no fewer than 30 young people work there, who manufacture and sell hammocks and other cloth items to earn a means of living and their own autonomy. In the workshop, the country's cotton is woven and natural dyes are employed, all throughout the manufacturing process, from preparing the skeins to quality control. The final product is exhibited at the same production site, so that customers can learn about the process used to create their future purchases. In addition to their day-to-day work, the works receive cultural and professional training and, in the case of the deaf and dumb, are also taught sign language.
