The Best Hook to Hang your Hammock

The Best Hook to Hang your Hammock or Hanging Chair

Today, we want to talk about the best hook to hang your hammock and hanging chair, made in Spain using stainless steel. It is a great product from our online store that proves its daily growing and that is being trusted by more and more people. Top quality and craftsmanship are the reasons why it is so successful.

Let us tell you about the origins of this product:

Brasilchic wanted good moorings for our hammocks and hanging chairs with the same quality as the rest of our products, enjoyed as new by our clients year after year as.This is only possible thanks to the great quality of the fabric our hammocks and chairs are made of, pure raw organic cotton.

This is the origin of our Brasilchic hammock hooks

We were after a top quality hook that were also elegant, made in Spain, and most importantly… made of stainless steel. It doesn’t look as an easy task, especially when there weren’t similar products in the market.

A common hook was not enough for our demanding customers, who are used to our high quality range of hammocks and hanging chairs. After a lot of market research, we knew that our only option was to create our own hook, and this is how our stainless steel hanging hammock hook was born.

During the design and manufacturing process we had in mind a perfect hook to use at the beach, during any season and for different environmental conditions, such as rain, sun, saltpetre… This is, adverse conditions that would quickly spoil common materials. Our only thought was to offer a totally reliable product: a strong, durable and safe hook not affected by rusting or corrosion, and also noiseless in order to not interrupt our appreciated customers’ naps or relax.

A craftsman creates each hook, cleaning, welding and giving it its characteristic curve.

Today, we are very proud of this product, not only because it undoubtedly is the best in the market, but also because it is totally developed and manufactured in Spain. We wanted our clients to notice its added value as soon as they opened the package… and we really think we have succeeded.

Our hook is the best, made of a top quality material, stainless steel 18/10. Light, sleek and noiseless, it is possible to have it hanging from our wall or roof forever..

Everything, even all the accessories, such as 6 cm screws and washers, is made of stainless steel. And the dowels are by the industry leader, Fisher themselves.

By buying in our store, you will know that every single detail adds value to your purchase.

We are very aware that you get what you pay for. Brasilchic is always trying to make our clients passionate about our brand and to give them safe and durable products. This is our main motivation to do always our best in everything we do.

Today, our hanging hook is undoubtedly the best in the market. We sell all around the world, exporting it to different countries.

This is why we are bringing some ideas about destinations to travel with your baby in spring. From cities to natural environments, passing through beautiful beaches, we offer you some ideas to travel with babies for every taste.

City

Acueducto de Segovia

Thanks to its rich history, the Iberian Peninsula is full of cities that present an unequalled beauty. Do not have in mind only the big cities, but also small and not so well known places that are equally majestic and are ideal destinations to travel with your baby.

Our first suggestion is Segovia. In this Castilian capital declared World Heritage Site, you will admire a monumental architecture spanning from the Roman age, with its famous aqueduct, to modern days. In addition, you will discover a delicious gastronomy and lovely streets avoiding crowds. It is a perfect first touristic experience for your baby.

Another excellent option is León, where monuments, quiet and fun for every age join together. Visit its Cathedral and Royal Pantheon, go for a walk in the downtown and enjoy some ‘tapas’ in the ‘Húmedo’, everything with your small boy or girl. If you add that León has ben declared 2018 Spanish Gastronomy Capital, it is a perfect destination to visit during this spring.

Finally, it is to be mentioned that spring is a good time to be some days in bigger cities, such as Barcelona or Lisbon. Without the annoying crowds of tourists that arrive in summer, you and your baby can have a good opportunity to go there.

Beach

Cala Escorxada de Menorca

Who says that beach destinations are only for the summer? If both you and your baby love beach, here are some ideas to travel this spring.

The Canary Islands offer beautiful beaches, nice temperaturas and unequalled natural environments where you can enjoy with your baby. Any of these islands have accesible places, Delicious food and a nice ambience where the smallest members of the family will feel at home.

Menorca is another island, as well as a good destination to travel with your baby in spring. Maybe it is not the most visited Balearic island, but this is just the reason why it is perfect to go with your little girl or boy. You will be surprised by its coves with crystal-like waters, its history and the kindfulness of its people.

The bravest ones will also love the seven best beaches from northern Spain. However, be careful with its waves and the temperature of the water, the best option in spring is just go for a walk through them.

Mountain

Lagos de Covadonga en Asturias

If you are an adventurer, you were waiting this section. Pay a lot of attention if you enjoy walking on the mountain with your baby in your Carrier.

If you go to Asturias, you can visit Covadonga lakes. It is a mountain destination with an easy access, so it is ideal to travel with your baby. Amazing views, a lovely shrine and a really enjoyable time for children and adults. But wrap up!

A little further South, in the province of León, we recommend you El Bierzo. In this region, you will find impressive places easily accessible, such as Las Médulas. Walking through the ruins of what in the ancient times was a mountain is really breathtaking, just as looking at them from the viewpoint. But, if you are looking for some more adventure for your baby, you can enter gorgeous valleys, like Silencio valley or Ancares valley.

We hope that these destinations to travel with your baby in spring have given you some idea. There is no doubt that there are many other great places, do you know any of them that you wish to share?

The seven best beaches in northern Spain

The seven best beaches in northern Spain

Spain has been a sun and beach destination for years, and it atracts tourists from all around Europe. We often remember the Mediterranean coast, Balearic and Canary islands, and forget that the coasts in northern Spain are a real treat for the eye. That is over. With this post, you will know the seven best beaches in northern Spain, according to many people.

Las Catedrales Beach

The seven best beaches in northern Spain

Placed in Ribadeo (Galicia), in the core of the so called ‘Mariña Lucense’, Las Catedrales Beach will amaze you with its unbelievable rock formations that are very similar to the arches of a gothic cathedral. It is one of the best beaches in northern Spain to go for a walk because its landscape is totally different depending on the tides. In low tide, you will be able to go over this beach and admire its arches and caves. In high tide, the ocean soaks the inside of this one-of-a-kind natural cathedral.

El Silencio Beach

Playa del Silencio

We travel to Cudillero (Asturias) in order to take you to El Silencio Beach. However, while you relax in its cool, crystal-clear water, you will realize that, actually, your ears get something better than silence: the sea birds, the breeze and, most importantly, the roar of the Cantabrian Sea. Do not miss the natural beauty of this corner and the picturesque village of Cudillero.

Gulpiyuri Beach

Playa de Gulpiyuri

In the municipal area of Llanes (Asturias) you will find not only one of the most beautiful beaches in northern Spain, but also one of the most singular ones: Gulpiyuri Beach. Right after a short walk through the country, you will arrive to —apparently— a little lake between fields and cliffs. But don’t be tricked by your own sight, the sea goes through caves in the rocks to créate this interior beach where, in low tide, the water disappears completely. Feel free to take a bath and relax in the sun with your family on one of the best beaches in the Cantabrian coast.

Torimbia Beach

Playa de Torimbia

We stay in Llanes (Asturias), because between the blue sea and the green mountain the spectacular Torimbia Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cantabrian coast, reveals itself. This vast beach is perfect if you want a bath, but also if you want to walk its 500 metres of fine, clear sand wearing your trunks… or not.

Los Locos Beach

Playa de los Locos

Our trip to the East takes us to Los Locos Beach, placed in Suances (Cantabria). Turn to one side and you will see magnificent cliffs. Turn to the other side and you will find the majestic ocean. However, this is not just another gorgeous place in the Cantabrian coast. It is one of the best beaches in northern Spain for surfing. For this reason, here you will find a young, relaxed atmosphere.

Laga Beach

Playa de Laga

Already in Biscay (Basque Country), you will arrive to the beautiful Laga Beach. Crystal-clear waters, bars, restaurants and a wild nature are together, perfectly combined, on this beach placed by the Cape Ogoño. It is not only placed among the most beautiful beaches in the Cantabrian coast for tourists and bathers. It is also a great destination to practice surf and other sports.

La Concha Beach

Playa de La Concha

The last beach on this list is also the only one in an urban location: the well known La Concha Beach, in San Sebastián (Basque Country). It is a magical place to bath, sunbath and, after that, enjoy the historic quarter and the gastronomy of this town.

These are only some examples of the best beaches in northern Spain. However, the Cantabrian coast is full of gorgeous beaches and coves where you can enjoy a bath and a beautiful landscape. Do you know more places you would add to this list? Do not hesitate to comment.

Rock Code

The best sports leggings by Rock Code

There is nothing like sports leggings to make some exercise, no doubt about that. However, their designs are often dull, grey… in short, boring. We, the Brasilchic team, have realised that, and this is why we are introducing the bold sports leggings by the Brazilian brand Rock Code.

Brazil is one of the leading countries regarding fitness fashion, something you will notice when you try Rock Code leggings. The most important thing when you are practicing sports is comfort, assured by the elasticity and resistance of their materials. But comfort is not everything. Rock Code sports leggings give you a one-of-a-kind wild style that will not be unnoticed. What exactly will you get with these leggings?

The last trends in women’s fitness fashion

You don’t only wish comfortable sports leggings, right? You are also looking for a beautiful and colourful garment to use at any moment. A pair of sports-styled tights or pants you can use to go for a walk showing a casual look. Rock Code leggings follow the latest trends in women’s fitness fashion and dare to go even further to become a unique piece of clothing.

Rock & roll style

The name itself says it, don’t you think? If you prefer to go unnoticed, these sports leggings are not for you. Rock Code takes the risk of showing the boldest prints, inspired by rock & roll and heavy metal culture. Skulls, animal prints and one-of-a-kind colour schemes meet each other to bring you the best sports leggings for women like you.

Top comfort

After all, as we said above, the most important feature is confort. Wheter you practice intensive sports or you use sports leggings as casual clothes, Rock Code leggings guarantee an unequalled comfort. Rock Code has not an unmistakable style, but also uses the best materials and processes during the manufacturing of its fitness fashion products.

We could go on and on about how much we like Rock Code sports leggings, but we prefer you to discover and value them by yourself.  And do not hesitate to leave a comment, we will be glad to know your thoughts.

Four tips to choose your hammock

Four tips to choose your hammock

Spring is finally here. Days are longer, weather is warmer, we start making plans outdoors… We all enjoy relaxing a little bit while reading a book or having a drink, and the best way to do it is having a good hammock. This posting will try to give you four tips to choose your hammock. It can’t be easier!

1. Take into account the available space

Are you going to hang your hammock in a garden, a terrace, a room…? Choose the best place to hang it and take some measures. Depending on these measures, you may be interested in a hammock or a hanging chair, or maybe you need an extension rope… Remember that each space needs its own kind of hammock.

2. Think about the size of your ideal hammock

This point is closely related to the previous one. Obviously, the available space will determine the size of your hammock to a large extent, but there is always some room for manoeuvre.

Do you live alone or with your partner? Do you have children? Or do you live with your flatmate? Maybe you don’t know, but there are individual, two-person and even family-size hammocks. Decide how many people are going to enjoy your hammock before buying it.

The best tips to choose your hammock

3. Choose your hammock’s colours

You choose your outfits having in mind their styles and colours, don’t you? Then, you should do the same with your hammock or hammock chair. Think about your favourite colours, but also about the environment where you are going to hang your hammock. You could finally select a discreet hammock, or maybe you prefer something more daring and colourful. It depends on your own style.

4. Look for the best price-quality ratio

Last, but not least, you should look for the best price-quality ratio. You don’t want a bad hammock which will not last all summer long, but a comfortable, long-lasting product for a reasonable price.

These four tips will help you if you are looking for the hammock or hanging chair which best fits your needs, but each case is different. Do you know other factors to take into account? We will be glad to read them.

The most Comfortable Handcrafted Shoes in the World

Luxury handcrafted shoes in tricot and leather Attraverso per Grecco

Andrea Grecco, creator and owner of the luxury handcrafted shoes brand Attraverso per Grecco

Hello, “BChics”! Today, we want to share with you our interview with Andrea Grecco, the creative mind behind the original handmade shoes Attraverso per Grecco.

Andrea comes from southern Brazil, she’s a model, an artist and has an restless mind. Do you want to know from her own lips how her brand was created and lots of characteristics of her great handcrafted shoesLet’s go!

Brasilchic – Andrea, could you tell us how did you come up with the idea of making such original shoes?

Andrea Grecco – Among all kinds of footwear, boots have always been my passion, and the idea of creating 100% handmade shoes came from my desire to use this kind of footwear throughout the year in a comfortable way. The first challenge was choosing the best material, because boots are closed shoes. How could I make unique shoes that brought me the same level of comfort than a pair of socks? They should be equally elastic and flexible to offer the necessary freedom of movement.

Brasilchic – It is a really difficult question, what was your technique to obtain these wonderful shoes?

Andrea Grecco – I have always loved working with tricot, and, while making a scarf, I came up to the idea of trying to use leather-like materials. Could I create a tricot sock that became a shoe?

Brasilchic – When did you decide to start your own brand and manufacture your first products for the Brazilian market?

Andrea Grecco – The acceptance of the first unit I manufactured made me start projecting Attraverso Per Grecco, because everybody told me how much they loved it, and asked me where had I bought such an original and different pair of boots. Actually, the beginning was a hard time, it was a six month research, including trials, until I reached the ideal form and materials. After an additional period of six months, I got a final trial that became a great success, with a lot of acceptance in many shops from southern Brazil.

Brasilchic – Andrea, tell us, why an Italian name for a Brazilian brand?

Andrea Grecco – The name Attraverso per Grecco comes from my Italian origins. Greggo is my surname, and Attraverso means “to go through”. Actually, it occurred to my by accident, I guess your origins are always there and come back in key times (laughing).

Brasilchic – Tell us something more about tricot and how do you apply it to your shoes. It’s an original technique applied to footwear.

Andrea GreccoTricot is totally handmade, boots are made one by one with special needles and all the needed stitches, depending on their material and their height. Today, we have three heights, short, intermediate and high, in different sizes (36-40).

I work with three materials, and every Attraverso per Grecco boots have elastane to assure an absolute comfort. These high-end materials are suede, distressed suede and synthetic leather. We buy metres of these materials and manufacture the balls for tricot. The materials are cut in strips of a specific thickness in our factory, then, these strips are sticked together and rolled until they form a ball, just like a ball of wool. All this process is carefully handmade.

Handmade knitting shoes

Brasilchic – It looks like a very tough work, I guess it isn’t possible for any person who likes tricot.

Andrea Grecco – (Laughing) People always ask me that, but, actually, this product requires very specific techniques and machinery which isn’t accessible for everyone.

Brasilchic – We have observed that design is a key part of your products, and I guess clients look for it, am I right?

Andrea Grecco – Our SLIM design, or fine point, is intended to be more elegant and sophisticated, without interfering with toe comfort. Since they are sock boots, we use cords made of the same material instead of zips, and they make our shoes very easy to wear; you only have to open them using your toes. All the users love this feature.

Brasilchic – What about the sole and the heel? What are they made of? They look like natural wood…

Andrea Grecco – The sole is made of flexible rubber, so it adapts itself to the movement of the feet and guarantees an anti-slip footwear. The heel is made of high-resistant light wood, it has a medium height, so it doesn’t affect too much feet anatomy, and is really comfortable to walk.

Brasilchic – Colours are one of the main feautres of your products, where does this variety come from?

Andrea Grecco – They are always selected according to the fashion season, and we make one-of-a-kind series, because of the metres of material acquired by the factory.

Brasilchic – Your product seems to be completely unique. Is it possible that somebody can wear a similar pair of boots which aren’t made by Attraverso per Grecco?

Andrea Grecco – You’re right, that’s impossible. My clients love the idea of wearing something original they cannot find in any shoe shop, and, above everything else, the unequalled comfort of our footwear.

Brasilchic – Thank you, Andrea. This has been Brasilchic’s first interview for our blog. I’m looking forward to speak with you again, talking about many novelties. I know that you can’t stop innovating, as the great entrepeneur you are.

Andrea Grecco – It has been a pleasure to speak with you. I hope we can see each other very soon. Bye!


Before we say goodbye, we want to summarize the Attraverso per Grecco products. We hope you like them and we encourage you to enjoy a unique, comfortable and very elegant product. It is for sure a very Brasilchic product.
