Introducing our new line of Mexican handwoven hammocks.
Using centuries-old methods, all our hammocks are handmade by Mayan women in the Yucatan of Mexico. They can be made from 100% cotton or Nylon depending on the climate you live in.
Our artisan partners are primarily women who weave hammocks in their spare time from home. This allows them to supplement their family income whilst continuing to care for their children.
When you purchase 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.
Both Cotton and Nylon hammocks have their advantages.
The nylon is more resistant to humidity and outdoor living. The perfect option for a rental space as you gain the wow factor but with low maintenance. The colors are also very pleasing to the eye and are often used as decorative pieces on the wall.
The cotton hammocks are softer and more forgiving against the skin. If you live in a dry cool climate, and this hammock is only for your daily relaxation, we suggest you choose cotton.
Average product dimensions: Double hammock: Length 157 inches x width 108 inches.
Use and Care:
Handwash: Fill a big tub with cool water and add a small amount of mild detergent. Do not put so much detergent that it foams and bubbles. Use a soft bristle brush or use your hands to wash it and scrub away the dirt on your hammock. Empty the water from the tub and then refill with fresh water to rinse off the excess soap. Repeat until soap has been removed. Hang to dry.
Note: If we have your hammock in stock once an order is confirmed, we will ship it immediately, otherwise we will weave to order. Please consider 1-2 weeks for production, plus shipping timings if your hammock is not in stock.
