Christopher Columbus’ voyages resulted in more than the discovery of America. As the story goes, he also discovered the hammock and brought the Mayan Indian invention back to Europe, where its popularity spread. Mayan women in remote Mexican Yucatán villages still hand-weave the cotton hammocks as they did centuries before Columbus’ journey.
The Fair Trade system of production enables them to supplement their family income while they care for their children at home. The hammocks, said to be created under eco-friendly conditions, have the modern-day addition of strong nylon braiding at their ends, allowing them to be hung between tree trunks, sturdy fence posts or walls. They are available in single, queen, king and super-king sizes and in a choice of natural and several hues, including multicolor, shown above. Order from StyleMexican, stylemexican.com.

Our homes are the most common place for people to socialize. We hang out with our family and friends there, and in the summer time will use the backyard and patio areas to entertain. It is the only place where we need not necessarily pay for the venue costs as long as there is a host, a BBQ and some furniture ever ready to accommodate. The only preparations required for these backyard occasion are some food, a little sweeping and some comfortable outdoor furniture. If you want to make those moments even more enjoyable or are looking for some great Mexican decorating ideas, Mayan hammocks and Mexican serapes can add vibrancy, color and comfort to your location and occasion.
Our hammocks are made in the Yucatan region of Mexican around the town of Merida. We work with several hundred familes in the local communities and provide their handmade artisan products directly to you.
