TTTM Milestones

Ticket To The Moon History

1970s

As a child, TTTM’s founder, Charly, developed a deep love for hammocks. He would use his father’s old straw nets to tinker hammocks.

1994

During his trip to India, Charly bought polyester fabric, tied both ends to trees, in order to tinker a hammock for protection from insects and dirt. Living the ‘hippy life’ in the West of India, he joined up with other backpackers and created the hammock camping: sometimes there would be more than 30 hammocks hanging from the same tree.  

1996

While visiting Bali, Charly discovers a fantastic new fabric: parachute nylon. Soon he starts his quest for the ultimate hammock: one that is easy to bring along, lightweight and quick to pitch. It is in this spirit that the TTTM Parachute Hammock is born. Delivered with an attached pouch for safe-keeping, the nautical ropes and the stainless hooks enable a quick and easy setup and the typical triple interlocked stitching ensures optimal safety.

Charly’s revolutionary new hammock design, using breathable, elastic, anti-mildew and resistant material available in vibrant colors, is an instant success. Charly starts selling his product at music festivals, fairs and street markets all over Europe.

1997

After a great initial success at many European music festivals, Charly realizes that his hammock could be something more than just a way to cover the costs of his travels...
