Pawleys Island



Captain Joshua John Ward is credited with creating the Pawleys Island rope hammock, at Pawleys Island (South Carolina, USA) in 1889. He was a river boat pilot who barged rice and supplies between the nearby Georgetown and the rice plantations of the South Carolina low country.

It is believed that he created the hammocks after finding the traditional grass-filled mattresses on his boat too hot in the summer. He wanted to make a cooler, more comfortable cotton rope hammock for use on his river boat and after several unsuccessful attempts created a hammock using wooden spreaders without knots.
