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.

We previously owned 2 other cotton rope hammocks that had stretcher bars at the top & bottom. HE enjoyed them... I didn't...because the ropes always dug into me. Plus, since they were white rope, over time the mildew and dirt built up, leaving them a dreary green and gray. I liked the idea of no stretcher bars that would allow us to easily hang it, take down, and store on any given day. I also appreciated that I could choose a color other than white. Other buyers had good comments on this type of hammock so I bought it for him. When it arrived he at first looked skeptical about a "sling" hammock but once he hung it and catnapped in it, he became a true convert! I also like that it is made available for sale through Novica, where artisans around the world can sell their quality work. Thanks, Overstock for making this available and at a reasonable price.
This was very hard to assemble based on the provided pieces. I had to resort to obtaining additional items to securely hock it up. It also does not spread appropriately and is loose on the edges and tight in the middle. I don't recommend this product, especially not for the high price I paid.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. OK, not excelent
The hammock is just big enough for 1 person, so it wraps around you which is very relaxing. The only reason I don't have 5 stars, is the strings on one of the ends were woven together wrong (I think) so it twists slightly at the one end.
I AM SORRY TO SAY I WAS NOT HAPPY WHEN I HUNG MY HAMMOCK AND MY FEET FELL THROUGH THE STRING....IT IS THINLY MADE AND NOT VERY COMFORTABLE...I WISH NOW I HAD BOUGHT THE HEAVIER ONE....IT DOES NOT HANG LIKE THE PICTURE.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? NO, IT IS DARKER
This is so very comfortable and easy to assemble! I have mine right between two trees in my back yard and can't wait to use this year after year. It is very well made and I would recommend this to anyone!
Nice hammiock - what else can I say. I lay around and don't hit the ground. I swing back and forth and feel just like a sloth! I like it and would recommend it to others looking for a bit of relaxation.
Such and easy set up using the enclosed directions. So comfortable and relaxing. Could use a fresh wash when you get it, but that is easy based upon the directinos as well. Feel really good about supporting the commuinties that Overstock has partnered with as well!
