Chinchorro is the word Wayuu people use to talk about a hand-made hammock. They use a rudimentary loom to make the body of the hammock. Then, the hanging parts are crocheted.
When a Wayuu woman is pregnant, she starts making a hammock with will be used by her child through his life.
This hammock measures 150 inches in end to end length and 70 inches wide excluding the crochet area which is 15 inches additional in both sides.
Each $50 will help feed 5 Wayuu children through The Wayuu Taya Foundation.
