Story Behind the Product:
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.

It's a very pretty hammock, and looks like it could last a long time. Unfortunately, since it doesn't have supports on the ends to keep it open, it's difficult to get into. When you lay in the center it pulls tight under your back so you feel like you're going to roll to one of the sides, which are very loose! Hard to explain, but we've never had a hammock feel like that before. We ended up returning it, as it was too expensive to just use as decoration, and too uncomfortable to actually use. Other reviewers indicated that it was quite comfortable, so we may have just received a "lemon" :)
