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.

This is my second "Natural Handmade Cotton Hammock". I didn't take care of th first one and it fell apart. So I replaced it on a trip to Mexico, with a nylon version. Big mistake. Within a day of putting it up, I was back on Overstock Worldstock, ordering my replacement. This hammock is amazing. It forms to your body and feels as if you are floating on air. It has a soft feel to it when laying down, yet is very strong. Everyone who visits me, is encouraged to experience my hammock. Everyone loves it. When my partner comes over, he heads straight onto the balcony and lays in the hammock after a long work day. You do have to take care of it. Just take it down in ugly weather. I left my first one out, exposed to the winter and spring elements. It got moldy, so I soaked it in Oxyclean and vinegar. It worked, but the hammock didn't appreciate it. I will take better care of this one. BUY IT! You will love it and not be disappointed. Just remember to lay horizontally. That's the best way, and it is wide enough to support my partner's 6'2" frame.Read More
Comfortable and is a very good bargain. I would refer this hammock to anyone who is interested in a hammock and wants a great buy.Read More
This is the second time I've made this mistake. The photo looks like a hammock I used to have but it is completely deceptive. I crossed my fingers, hoping it was the same. My old hammock, which lasted for years, had thick, fluffy, comfy strings and the whole thing was very soft to the touch, but also strong and supportive. It was heavy when dry, and almost too heavy to lift when wet. THIS ONE arrived packed in a plastic bundle the size of a three pound meat loaf. The threads (strings) are so thin there is no way they can provide 'natural comfort'. They'll cut into the skin, and are sure to fail in one season. Full disclosure: I am returning it before opening it, so I can't say I actually tried it out. I just know it is not what I expected. The price should have been a tipoff. My old hammock was several hundred dollars, if I recall. AND WORTH IT.Read More
Very comfortable and easy to install. I fell asleep on it the same day I put it up. This one replaced a previous hammock and is much more natural and comfortable.Read More
Do not put this hammock on a tree that has squirrels and a big dog in the yard. The hammock was destroyed in a few days by the dog chasing the squirrel.Read More
I looked for awhile for the right hammock as not all hammocks are created equal. This hammock lived up to my expectations. It's very well made and has a tight weave which seems to make it more comfortable. There are extra ropes and hardware as well as specific instructions as to how to hang the hammock and the instructions and pamphlet that came with it gives you the sense that a lot of pride went into making this hammock. I'm very happy with this purchase.Read More
I am an avide supporter of fair trade. This is a beautiful hammock, very well made and well worth the price listed.Read More
Great comfortable Hammock, I lay in it just about every afternoon for a short nap. Great retirement present to myself.Read More
About 20 years ago I purchased a hammock on the beach in Tulum, Mexico. I used it for the last 18 years and since our recent move cannot find it. Over the years the color faded but it held up great overall. This hammock is the same as the one I purchased then (except for the color), same materials, same size, etc. I am looking forward to many years of relaxation to come. These hammocks fold small and are light weight which makes them great for travel (I used my last one to sleep in when camping in Yosemite) and they are the most comfortable ones I know off. Highly recommend to everybody!! I purchased the single size and it fits great on my hammock stand (not too big).Read More
This is beautifully crafted and more comfortable than I expected. I would purchase again. So easy to hang!Read More
