About the Mr. Mocks Hammocks 

Mr. Mocks was founded in 2017 by Weston Barnes in Grasslake, MI. Weston, who learned to sew by making clothes for his mother's dog Maddie, started the business by hand-sewing each hammock in the early years. Fueled by Weston's lifelong passion for the outdoors and his dissatisfaction with the quality and prices of hammocks on the market, the he set out to create high-quality, affordable hammocks that anyone could enjoy.

Weston and Maria began dating and a shared love of the outdoors and bringing others into nature which drove Mr. Mocks forward. Maria manages the social media marketing and sales. Together, they strive to rival competitors in both quality and price, while also providing their customers with everything they need to start adventuring immediately.

Ms. Mocksie, Weston's beloved pastel calico cat, serves as the unofficial mascot of Mr. Mocks. Weston and Maria, both animal lovers, also spend a lot of time with their horses Scarlet and Beau and have various aquariums with fish and shrimp! 

They are both so grateful for the support of their friends and family, who have helped them turn their passion for the outdoors into a successful business. Mr. Mocks is dedicated to providing customers with the best possible hammocking experience.
