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 interior decor and style. From single size to family size, with a spreader bar or without, to hammock chairs and more, you'll find the right hammock for you, your family and friends from our extensive selection of handmade Mexican hammocks. 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 by Mayan women in the Yucatan of Mexico. These authentic Mayan made, Mexican 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. 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.
All our Mayan hammocks and Mexican hammocks are handmade, cotton hammocks .With nylon, threads are bright and shiny, but less forgiving against the skin. Cotton, being a natural fiber, has a much nicer feel to it and with the right care, can last for many years. The end strings or loop strings of our hammocks are made of nylon for strength and support.
The jumbo size Mexican hammock is the big daddy of them all. All the room you need for you and your friends or lots of room for you and the kids - and maybe the cousins too. It’s not uncommon to get 6 people easily in this hammock. It’s the perfect “party hammock”.
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.
