Story Behind the Art:
Long before the Spanish arrived in 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 hand-weave 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.

The hammock is lovely and I am very sad to have to return it. However it is way too long for our 13.5' hammock stand. When hung up (without the ropes), it curved all the way to the bottom and then if sat in, the person was touching the base of the stand. I assumed that it was adjustable up to the 13' measurement with the ropes - not that the hammock itself was that length without the ropes. If you have a regular sized hammock stand this will not work for you. So sad, it was lovely and very comfortable (apart from touching the floor!)

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems very well made and is beautiful
How accurate was the sizing? Did not work for us - was too long
I really like this hammock. It is very natural and blends well with our backyard. It is raw cotton and you can smell that it is a natural product. I recommend it. We plan to wash it by hand and to never leave it outside to prevent it from water and sun damage.
