Welcome to Mexican Hammocks, Hammock Hub!
Hola, and welcome to the Mexican Hammock hub. A place where we hope you can learn a bit more about authentic hand-woven Mexican Hammocks. Also often referred to by other terms such as Mayan hammock, rope hammock, garden hammocks, banana hammock, swing hammocks and so on....
There are many different varieties of hammocks available throughout the world, and many regions and countries will have their own unique hammock. The Mexican hammock is really one of the original hammocks invented by the Mayan Mexicans and has been around for thousands of years.
What stands apart from other hammocks is that Mayan Mexican Hammocks are 100% hand-woven. No machinery or factories are involved. Hammocks are still made the traditional way in the homes of indigenious Mayan who have passed the hammock weaving techniques and skills down through the generations over many hundreds of years. A very traditional product still being used everyday.
The way in which these hammocks are woven, through a tight diamond interwoven pattern is what makes them so superior in comfort and beauty. For a hammock the tighter the weave the more comfortable and support the hammock will be. That is why you will often see cheaper hammocks with big large weave patterns in them. They will not provide nearly the comfort or support and you will quickly tire of them. A traditionally woven Mexican hammock will provide hour upon hour of comfort and last many years with the proper use and care.
Mexican hammocks will come in many sizes and styles. From a simple single person hammock, which is great for camping or traveling with, through to large family size hammocks, that enable you to relax in together with your whole family. Great for spending time with loved ones, reading to your children, chatting or just relaxing together. Other types of Mexican hammocks include chair hammocks, which are a fun and practical hammock. Hand-woven like all Mexican hammocks, they allow you to site up or recline back. Popular for reading books in the garden, and for accommodation providers - such as backpackers, lodges and resorts. They are often seen hanging in beach bars in Mexico and make a great alternative to standard chairs. Another common Mexican hammock is the spreader bar hammock, or resort style hammock. This hammock has a wooden bar at each end which keeps the hammock permanently spread out. A very beautiful and decorative hammock with lovely wooden ends and woven fringe. It will provide a lasting and practical feature to you home garden, patio or hotel/resort, or make a superb gift.
So I hope you enjoyed that quick introduction, please have a look around the hub, I hope to update this site with regular content and you can check out our full range of authentic Mexican hammock products here.
