Ar•Ya is a way of being. Ar•Ya is relaxation. Ar•Ya is happiness.
The Ar•Ya Hammock was designed by Calvin Rieger, an inventor and traveler who believed the world needed a better way to relax in a well known concept – a hammock – but designed to work with gravity. A hammock made of a comfortable material you would love to touch, that’s also strong, sturdy and long lasting.
Hammocks in general have a long history of helping people slow down in various ways. The Ar•Ya Hammock is designed to work with gravity in a dynamic way. After years studying gravity, sewing & stitching the Ar•Ya Hammock was born. When we were faced with choosing a material we decided to go our own way which lead us to inventing the Ar•Ya fabric. Ar•Ya is a lightweight, durable & multipurpose material. The Ar•Ya Hammock is our gravity-inspired take on the classic hammock.
Ar•Ya is the name Calvin chose not only because of the meaning, but also because it sounds similar to saying “aaaahhh yeeaaahhh”! Arya is a Sanskrit term frequently used in Buddhism that can be translated as “noble” or “exalted”. Similarly, we at Ar•Ya want to work towards things which are noble in their cause, and serve a higher philosophical thinking. We bring Ar•Ya as a revolution to the world, by enhancing the age old tradition in terms of its quality and scientific adaptability.
