About this item: Fluorescent green and turquoise create a bold tropical effect on this inviting hammock from Mexico's Maya Artisans of the Yucatan. They keep tradition alive by weaving the hammock with the same techniques developed by 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. To wash, hook the loops together and keep out of the basin to avoid hammock from getting tangled.
