Details

Fuchsia and royal blue create a fabulous iridescent effect on this inviting hammock from Mexico's Maya Artisans of the Yucatan. They keep tradition alive by weaving the hammock with the same techniques developed by their Maya ancestors.

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.

"Love it!"

I love how soft it is compared to the one I replaced it with. It came with rope with a reinforced section and S hooks. The rope is great to use with carabiners as they are more secure than S hooks. Thank you so much!

"Breathtakingly beautiful and practical"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This hammock is as beautiful as the photos. It has been on my dream board for many years but it was only recently that I was able to afford it and also clear a space on my balcony for a hammock stand (from Walmart). I face west and the golden bronze colour is particularly luminous at sunset. It is a dream come true! The double size creates a privacy screen from my neighbours when I lie diagonally as I live in the city. It arrived within 3 days from Mexico, including going through Customs!!! I had been having a challenging day and when I opened the eco packaging and saw the beautiful hammock and the thoughtful hand-written thank you card, tears of joy starting streaming down my face. I am grateful that I was able to support an artisan and their community. I love my hammock and the comfort and joy it gives me in the loving embrace of a mother. It increases my living space so that I can truly enjoy my summer stay-cation during COVID. Thank you to the artisan, Paulina, and NOVICA!
