Hammock, 'Cool Lagoon'

Item # 37277
In Stock

Roll over image to zoom in

Cool as a quiet lagoon, blue and aqua suggest the Mexican Caribbean. Woven by hand, this beautiful hammock comes from Maya Artists of the Yucatán who craft it in the same way they have for centuries.

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.

It easily packs for travel to the beach or lake. Extender ropes (measuring 1 meter), hammock hooks ("S" hooks), and step-by-step instructions included for easy installation.

NOTE: Because each is woven individually by hand, measurements may vary by as much as ten centimeters. There may be slight color variations from hammock to hammock.

Artisan: Maya Artists of the Yucatan

Artisan Maya Artists of the Yucatan

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.

Both men and women hand-weave magnificent and unique hammocks with colors and patterns created by our design department. "This way we are able to fulfill our objective: to make a decorative article that will also provide a comfortable rest."
