The serene blues of the Mexican Caribbean are repeated in a hand-woven hammock. It invites a blissful afternoon with a pitcher of iced tea and a good book. Maya Artists of the Yucatán create it in the same way they have for centuries.
Long before the Spanish arrived upon the coasts of the Yucatan Peninsula, the Maya preferred to sleep and rest in hammocks. They considered the hammock to be like the loving embrace of a mother, due to the comfortable manner in which the body is held and swung within its cradle. Maya Artists of the Yucatan seek to preserve time-honored customs while also offering stylized versions of the original Maya hammock. For them, the hammock is a work of art. Their hammocks are incredibly comfortable, easy to maintain, and may be stored just about anywhere.
It easily packs for travel to the beach or lake. Extender ropes (measuring 1 meter), hammock hooks ("S" hooks), and step-by-step instructions included for easy installation.
NOTE: Because each is woven individually by hand, measurements may vary by as much as ten centimeters. There may be slight color variations from hammock to hammock.

Beautiful blue color, flawless construction with quality materials. Also came with matching ropes to adjust and secure, including (2) ?S? hooks. Very comfortable, plenty big enough and very stable. We love it! Was blown away by how fast we received it! Received it in less than 2 days from ordering. Ordered Sunday night and received it Tuesday morning. I expected it to take several days. Glad to have it early and start enjoying it this Spring.
