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.

Nylon is not a good material for a hammock. It does not stretch and therefore you do not sink into it and easily roll off the sides especially when there are two people in it. without a spreader bar it does not open up as shown in the picture. I will have to replace it. That's the problem with buying on line and not trying it out first.Read More
