American Hammocks: The Perfect Outdoor and Garden Hammock.
The American hammock is based on the traditional hammock style, but includes spreader bars. The bars at the head and foot of the hammock thread or spread the weave of the hammock bed into a rectangular shape. Instead of enveloping the body like a traditional hammock, this one looks, feels and supports more like a bed mattress.
American Hammocks / Bar Hammocks - The Perfect Garden & Outdoor Hammock
The American hammock is great if you have limited space or no trees to tether your hammock to. This one is ideal for patios, smaller backyards, balconies, poolside and decks. They easily set up on a hammock stand (not included) and make a decorative addition to your garden oasis or cottage getaway. Spreader bar hammocks are an ideal outdoor accessory you can decorate with pillows and serapes blankets.
The American hammock provides comfort and support you need for one to three people or a young family! This hammock can easily be enjoyed by taller people and couples, yet not feel too big. This holds true even if it's for one person. The American is a very strong and resistant hammock holding up to 900 lbs. If you are not comfortable with the more traditional Mayan hammock, the American hammock will provide you with a more secure, traditional bed-like feel.
Both the American hammock and the Mayan hammock are made of cotton, with nylon end strings for extra strength. The comparison between a Mayan and American hammock is a Mayan hammock uses an open style that allows the hammock to expand and contract freely. While a Mayan hammock will envelop you, an American hammock with a spreader bar will provide more even support and a flatter surface to lie on. Both will provide a tight weave, feeling like a solid piece of cloth under you.
American hammocks are great for those who want to spend their days in the outdoors, laying in a hammock. This one is perfect for the garden. The style of this hammock would easily add a decorative touch for anyone looking to accentuate or accessorize an outdoor landscape. This is the one for those who want something tougher, yet warm and inviting for friends, family and guests.

More Info On American Hammocks
Every one of our American speader bar hammocks is 100% hand woven by Mayan women in Yucatan, Mexico using centuries old methods. Many villagers make hammocks to suppliment their family incomes. In this way the women can work and take care of their children at the same time. They watch their own children asleep in these same outdoor hammocks as they make a hammock for you.
When you get a hammock from us, you are contributing directly to Mayan family income, supporting the independence of the women and local community development. If you are looking for the more traditional Mayan hammock style, with the different sizes, it’s strongly suggested to get at least a king size hammock or the American as outlined here.
