HamacaMaya Hammocks are the most comfortable hammocks on Earth.
The diamond weave adjusts to the weight and shape of the body perfectly. The support removes pressure points and thus allows the muscles of the body to relax. The feeling has been compared to floating on a cloud.
Mayan hammocks are very wide allowing to lie down in a diagonal position. Body weight is distributed evenly throughout the hammock. This is the adequate and ideal posture for sleeping, as the inhabitants of the Mayan zone have been doing for hundreds of years.
|Every Mayan hammock is 100% handwoven on vertical looms by talented
artisans using centuries old techniques. These hammocks are handwoven in
the state of Yucatan in Mexico. Each one is a unique work of art and no
two are exactly alike. |
A large hammock is woven with more or less 2 kilometers of thin cotton or nylon yarn and the Mayan weavers take around 2 weeks to complete one.
The produced hammock is strong enough to hold from 150kg to 400kg. They are easy to transport, store, light and ideal for trips. A hammock weighs between 0.9kg and 6kg, depending on the style and size.
For the more then 500 families working with us hammock weaving represent an important additional income if not their only one. We thank you on their behalf.
