Details

Maya Artisans of the Yucatan select a refreshing palette of blues and green for the design of this inviting hammock. They keep tradition alive by weaving the hammock with the same techniques developed by their Maya ancestors, using doubled cotton yarn for a thicker texture. The hammock's loops are crafted with nylon threads. 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.

Please note: For best results, store indoors when not in use. Colors may bleed when wet.

Please note: The accompanying extension ropes may vary in color from those shown in the images.

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.

To wash, hook the loops together and keep out of the basin to keep hammock from getting tangled.

"Thank you"

This is a beautiful, well-made hammock, packed with silk ropes and hooks, and especially during this time when I cannot travel, it was almost as nice to get a simple, heartfelt post card from the artist in Real de Catorce. Thank you Paulina and Novica
