"How long are the wood bars? We are putting this in a small porch and need a narrow one as opposed to a wide one."
We love this, the rope is great quality and v comfy. It's unique and as an added benefit it's a fair trade item. Great price too as i did quite a bit of comparison shopping before purchasing. Definitely would recommend this to anyone!...

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.

This hammock took several weeks to get to my house, but it was worth the wait. The quality is great and it was very easy to install. I was looking in stores and online and never found anything like this. The weave of the rope is much tighter than traditional hammocks, so it makes for a much more comfortable place to lay, plus your toes, feet and elbows don't end up sticking through. The rope is also made of a soft cotton so it isn't scratchy against your skin. The best part is the fringe - it is truly what makes this hammock so unique and gorgeous. I look out my back window every day and fall in love with this lovely hammock over and over again!!Read More
I love my new hammick! It's very soft, and comfy. I would reccommend this hammock to everyone. I had my grandson post a picture of me in it, on facebook, and I got twenty three comments. I think the fringe on the sides make it really stand out. Can't miss with this one!Read More
We were more than pleased with the price and quality of this product. This hammock is easier to get in and out of, however, be sure not to have it too tight or you may "flip out" as you get in. Very comfortable and good looking.Read More
Nice hammock. It was a bit more narrow than expected, so you have to be very careful getting on and off. The quality is very good and it is pretty. It looks great on our porch.Read More
I originally gave this hammock a rating of 4 stars, but it fell apart after 3 months and no one in my family is heavy, so that wasn't it. The rope pulled right out of the wood and it is useless. It was pretty, but what a disaster, too bad. I won't buy it again.Read More
Bought this hammock to replace the one I originally had from Costa Rica. Even though its smaller I really liked the color and wanted the same soft threads that I had in my old one. Although the texture is similar and the hammocks looks very pretty it is not at all comfortable when you lay down. It leaves you in an awkward position and have to put your legs at an angle in order to feel comfortable.Read More
I have had hammocks for twenty years that were durable. Decided this one was so pretty that I would try it. It IS pretty looking but I went to lay in it last night and the entire thing shredded down the middle. I have only had it four months and have already had to tie up a couple rips in the hammock. HORRIBLE QUALITY!Read More
This was nothing special. Not sure if the retail price they listed before the "discounted" price they offered it at is that accurate.Read More
The best hammock I've ever bought. Beautiful design and very comfortable.Read More
