About this item: This comfortable hammock in black and ivory is destined to enhance your treasured moments of sweet relaxation. Skilled Maya Artists of the Yucatan hand-weave this hammock using the same techniques as their Maya ancestors. 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.
