How To Choose a Mexican Hammock
For more than 3,000 years, the Mayans developed a great culture with rich traditions. In the Yucatan of Mexico, Mayan hammocks have been used as an important piece of furniture indoors or outdoors, for resting and relaxation, just as they are today. Now you can enjoy them in and around your home, while adding a dash of style. From single size to family size, with a spreader bar or without, to hammock chairs and more, from our extensive selection of handmade Mexican hammocks, you'll find the right hammocks for you, your family and friends. These are perfect for indoors for maximizing space and adding style, or outdoors to enjoy in the comfort of the seasons and sun.
Using centuries old methods, all our hammocks are handmade, woven by Mayan women in the Yucatan of Mexico. The hammocks are made of 100% cotton, with the end strings or loops made of nylon for support. Cotton hammocks are the more comfortable hammocks, with the colors more pleasing to the eye. With nylon, threads are bright and shiny, but less forgiving against the skin. The Mayan women work on hammocks to support their family and earn an income. In this way, the women can take care of their young children and work at the same time. When you get a Mayan made hammock, you are contributing directly to family income, supporting the self-sufficiency of the women and the development of the whole community.
The Single Mexican hammock is great for solo use, for a lazy day on the beach or traveling. It's also great for young children old enough to use and enjoy a hammock. It's also very popular with students who are looking to add some extra seating in a small space or on the go.
The Queen (Double) hammock is a good size for taller people or couples. It can easily accommodate kids as well. The woven bed expands as wide as 7 feet, yet is still compact enough to take along on a picnic or camping trip, as well as for afternoons for two.
If you plan to share your Mayan hammock space with a friend or loved ones, we recommend the King. The weave is very dense and will remain practically solid when you lay in it. Best overall value in comfort and size you can't go wrong with the king.
Great for one or for the whole family, the comfort of the Super King Jumbo Mexican hammock is unmatched. These are our largest Mayan hammocks and are as good as it gets in the world of Mayan Hammocks. There is simply no hammock bigger than this one!
For something a little different, we also have thick cord Mexican hammocks. The big difference obviously is the cord used is thicker, about the size of a pencil lead. Some prefer the thicker cord over the more traditional thin cord hammocks. The choice is yours.
The American hammock has a wood spreader bar anchored at the head and foot of the hammock. The spreader bars make the hammock hang and feel more like a bed than a traditional hammock. If you are looking for a more conventional hammock, this is the one.
Nothing beats a hammock chair. These chairs easily hang indoors from a beam or secure support. They also easily set up in the shade of an old tree. The chair is very strong and perfect for a relaxing afternoon curled up with a book, a margarita or just a lazy day.
