I saw this type of hammock everywhere in Costa Rica but the ones sold there where not the same. I asked the people that had them (mostly restaurant and resort owners) and was told they come from Nicaragua. The Novica web site was the best selection and price i found and the order placed on the internet went smoothly. I gave it to my father & it now hangs at the family cabin!
These are beautiful hammocks. (I bought three, one for each of my kids.) They really brighten up the room. The kids love them. Everyone who's seen them loves them. They come with S hooks but you will need to buy swing hooks yourself. The rope also has a short leather protective sleeve for where it comes in contact with the S hook. They're durable. They've withstood lots of swinging and acrobatic stunts.
This is a beautiful hammock; excellent workmanship and very comfortable. And it's even been holding up well to the excitement of our toddler and pre-schooler... Thanks :)
