Master craftsman honors his lineage of Pepinian hammock makers

Jose Hernandez Seguinot belongs to a line of hamaqueros that weaved its history from his great-grandfather, who shared his knowledge about the ancient artisanal craft inherited from the Taino Indians.

At six years old, Jose knew how to make a hammock, as he learned by observing his predecessors who prepared the curious net in Saint Sebastian del Pepino and they would ride it on their shoulders to sell it in other towns.

They remained like this for several days until they reaped the fruit of their hard work to feed their loved ones. It is the cradle that shaped the Pepiniano artisan, who continues the legacy at 74 years old.

Not only that, but the teacher certified by the Industrial Development Company and the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture (ICP) also taught his wife Carmen Soto Quiles and his daughter, Kristy Marie, honoring his lineage with a fifth generation.
