About Pawleys IslandIn 1889 the Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock was created at Pawleys Island one of the oldest summer resorts on the South Carolina coast. When river boat pilot Captain Joshua John Ward found the grass-filled mattresses on his boat too hot in the summer he decided to make a cool and comfortable cotton rope hammock to use on his boat. After several uncomfortable designs Cap'n Josh made a hammock using wooden spreaders without knots. This original design has proven to be so comfortable that it's still used in Pawleys Island's popular hammocks over a century later. Pawleys Island continues to use the highest-quality materials when making its traditional all-cotton rope spun polyester rope and DuraCord hammocks. The custom-designed stretcher bars are cut from seasoned Carolina red oak then steamed bent drilled sanded and varnished to impart a comfortable sway to the hammock and to spread the rope evenly for optimum stability. The people of The Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock are incredibly proud to be anything but new-fangled. Now 120 years old and counting they continue to offer the very best of their past hoping it will help you better enjoy your future.
