Story Behind the Art: 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.

I was so excited to get this hammock! Once I saw the picture I fell in love with it. Since me & my family recently moved into a house with lots of land, I decided the first thing I was going to get was a hammock. I'm very pleased with this one. Although when put up it doesn't look like the picture, it is still very comfy and a beautiful color to look at. My saying is 'You get what you pay for!', and that is certainly the case with this item. I recommend it to anyone!
The color is so vibrant it transforms my NE backyard to another latitude! Very sturdy too (had it up to 350lbs.), and because it rolls itself back up when not in use it doens't collect hardly any pollen or leaves!
Hammock arrived fairly quickly, minimal packaging and good directions, easy to hook up, since we already had the hammock posts in place. I rated it as good vs excellent since I've only tried it out a few times so far, and can't speak to it's longevity. But I have owned hammocks like this in the past, and this one is very comfortable for 2 adults and very roomy. Great quality and the color is gorgeous, shiny. My 5 yr old also loves it and I feel she is more secure in a larger hammock too. Great for company or just relaxing on our own. I recommend taking it down and minimizing contact to the elements when not in use to prevent wear and tear. Just take care because the strings on either end can tangle easily. Overall, a great purchase, I will be spending as much time in it as I can once the weather finally turns and stays warm.
Saw many of these hammocks in Mexico for the same price, so I felt the online price was fair, and I didn't have to carry it home, it was delivered to my door! The directions on making the hammock knot are good. I don't need all that hardware to hang this hammock. It's so easy to take it down and put it up. Now I understand how they took so many down and up on the beaches in Mexico! ( they stay clean and dry, too.) Although this one has weathered several summer storms and still looks bright. The color is great!
I've been researching 2 person hammocks for awhile and decided to go with this one. I am very happy I did. It is made out of nylon and dries quickly. It feels sturdy and well made, plus can be folded down and taken in a backpack. Both my husband and i fit comfortably in it. No complaints.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes very much
