Details

This beige hand-woven hammock recalls the soft sands of the Caribbean. Mexico's Maya Artists of the Yucatán preserve the weaving techniques inherited from their Maya ancestors to ensure the hammock tradition.

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.

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.

I sent your ""White Sands (single) to a friend for a birthday this week. She has not opened it yet but I'm sure she will love this hammock. It appears to be very beautiful and well made of natural fibers. I hope to be able to order another hammock from the Maya Artists of the Yucatan very soon. Thank you!
