We at Hushamok are unique because we believe in individuality. Our designs are unlike anything else and instantly recognizable. Hushamok also believes in the importance of honouring culture which is why we took a very old and global concept and used it as a roadmap for our designs.
We are a passionate lot and believe in our vision which is to make safe baby and children’s furniture, sourcing natural materials wherever possible and using natural elements such as motion to help families to both sleep better and relax.
We're also a connected group that puts great emphasis on family. Founders, Julie (from Boston, USA) and her husband Mark (from Capetown SA), started Hushamok out of the care and affection they placed on their family. They're two little Kiwi boys are the inspiration behind Hushamok. Read Our Story.
Our company has a conscience because it chooses to. We love our customers and community because we want to live in a world that cares. We’re always excited when our Hushamok families share things with us and get involved, so we hope you can become part of the dream too. Good communication and partnerships hold great value in everything we do.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Moral of the story? Look out for the stuff you need rather than the stuff you don't. If you're looking to buy baby items always research what each item does and, ways in which they could be replaced. Your baby is sure to be the light in your life, and you don't want to waste a cent on something isn't a true benefit for them.
We're just wrapped with our Hushamok photo event, it's been a sort of roller coast ride with all those dreams, stories and beautiful families. We thought we would get lots of lovely nurseries (and we did) and stunning gardens (which we also did).
What we didn't expect was an open invitation to your special hideaways and the stories behind the love for your children both here and on their way. We love our Hushamok community and how many special people have stories that are just like our own.
You've just spent 9 months, give or take, bouncing around in the safety of your mothers womb. You didn't know who you were, but you didn't want for anything, food, warmth, comfort, sleep. Now you're out, everything is bright, scary and loud. You're content in your mothers arms, and when she feeds you you feel connected, happy, and maybe... no definitely more than a little sleepy. You start to drift to sleep but are jolted awake when you feel yourself placed against a cold hard surface.
A) immediately fall back to sleep, you don't care where it is you can sleep anywhere or
B) scream until the giant hands pick you up and rock you back to sleep
We've all heard stories about the baby who slept through the night from birth, who never cried, who learned to talk at 6 months, who published a novel by 12 months... Maybe your mother said you were that child, perhaps it was your younger brother (because you never slept apparently). We're all shocked when our perfect child won't allow us the luxury of sleep, when eating with two hands becomes a distant memory because there is always a baby in the other, when showering is a novelty only afforded when someone else is home to hold baby.
Let's be real, your baby is probably going to cry every time you try to let go, because that is what babies are programmed to do. Instead of trying to train them into switching their natural instincts off we'd like to suggest a much more pleasant alternative and introduce you to Hushamok.
Transitioning from the womb to the real world can be hard for babies so why not make it a whole lot easier with Hushamok. Our hammocks are a natural alternative to a baby bassinet or crib. With its natural swinging and rocking motion our hammock induces sleep in babies and keep them asleep longer.
