This colorful hammock holds the promise of a deep and relaxing siesta. Woven on a traditional loom, this modern version replicates those created by the Maya people centuries ago. From the Maya Artists of Yucatan, this hammock is embellished with a plethora of rich and vibrant colors.
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.
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.
