Products from La Siesta
The La Siesta GmbH has specialised in the development, marketing and distribution of hammocks and has its headquarters in Jugenheim, Germany. It was founded by Dorothee and Alexander Grisar in 1991, and is now managed by their sons.
They see hammocks as what they have always been: a South American national treasure. People from Colombia, Brazil or Mexico have not only used this cultural asset on a daily basis, they have continually developed and refined their hammocks through various stitching and patterns. For many South Americans, their hammock is the most typical – and decorative – expression of their culture and way of life. By producing and exporting hammocks, we thus bring a hint of Latin American lifestyle to Europe.
Their suppliers are among the best hammock manufacturers in their respective countries. In the many years that they have worked together, they have gained the respect and admiration of their partners in Colombia, Brazil, Mexico and India. Together, they work on the continued development of hammocks, hammock chairs and suspension systems. They hope to give this versatile and decorative commodity the same status in Europe and the United States that it has had for many centuries in South America. For many, it is not only a favourite part of everyday life, but also necessary travel companion.
Fairness is a main focus point in working with ther suppliers. This ensures a dignified existence for everybody involved. By doing so, they comply with international social and environmental standards and use sustainably cultivated raw materials such as organic cotton and FSC® certified wood
