sourcing from the centuries old culture of the human wish to control nature, toer‘s ‘field hammock’ reflects upon our management over the fields. the design is a combination of the slow movements of hanging in the air and the relaxing feeling of lying in a meadow. made from multicolored grass-like synthetic polyamide pile fabric, the hammock is water and UV ray resistant. as well, the straps are produced from durable polyester and secure to the hardwood poles that keep the mat in place.
