In 2002, Jason Stoter was studying abroad at the Universidad de Guadalajara in Mexico. During this time Jason stumbled across an entrepreneur selling hammocks on the West Coast of Mexico. It was love at first site (with the hammocks of course) and Jason proceeded to strike a deal and purchase his first hammock.
After his studies he sourced hammocks from several villages in the Yucatan peninsula that had been weaving hammocks for generations. This was the beginning of Hammock Village.
The next few years experienced tremendous growth as the outdoor living market continued to boom. And as a result of the year over year growth, an inspiring change was made and we now call ourselves Vivere Ltd. Vivere Ltd. will continue to offer the same quality and service that one could expect from Hammock Village, but we will go beyond hammocks and begin introducing other inspiring lines for outdoor living. Vivere Ltd. will continue to expand its hammock lines with vibrant new colours and contemporary designs.
Our desire is to promote relaxation and healthy lifestyles for Canadians. From coast to coast you can enjoy our products while having a siesta in your backyard, camping in the outback or sipping a cool drink at the cottage. We are passionate about outdoor living, and we hope we can assist you in achieving a little more rest and relaxation. Please peruse our website and experience a getaway from your home.
We look forward to partnering with you.
Vivere – Vivir – To Live
Vivere was inspired during my time in Mexico, 2002. I learned that the Spanish verb “Vivir” means “to live.” I also purchased my first hammock from an entrepreneur on the Pacific Coast of Mexico and voila: a business was born. Since then, the “hammock” has symbolized a balanced lifestyle, which is a great way to live: Vivere!
