Handmade Mexican hammock.
A perfect sized hammock for people up to 6’4 feet in height or for use by 2 people. On the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, the Mayan people acquired a weaving technique that is similar to a weaving technique used by the native Indian tribes of the Amazon forest. These hammocks look like colourful fishing nets, with the difference that the net does not contain a single knot. This gives this hammock its high flexibility. Mexican hammocks are often made of different colours and are most comfortable when lying in crosswise. This way the weaving of the hammock can support the whole body. Because of their open woven structure the Mexican hammocks are more vulnerable than closed woven hammocks. Be careful with buttons and buckles as these can get caught in the thread. The ‘Matrimonial Especial’ is made of a thicker thread and therefore is much sturdier. As these hammocks are hand crafted, variations in the colour and design will occur from the hammocks shown on this page. The Mexico ‘Matrimonial’ hammock fits in all of our hammock stands.
