Mexican Hammocks are a delight!
We have looked to the Mexicans to inspire us in creating the ideal Mexican Hammocks. Please think of the iconic colourful image of the Mexican taking a siesta under their hat. That means that it's important that an item is practical and a part of life's aesthetics. So, it needs to look good.
Probably wish he had a Mexican hammock.
That's why we use a wide selection of beautiful, vivid, ethnic prints that liven up these great hammocks. After all, a hammock is not only for hanging back. It's also an item that can accentuate your environment. You can place it in a garden, pergola, verandah, or anywhere that you choose to put it. Our customers often tell us that the lovely bright colours create a centerpiece to their environment, which everyone can admire even when not in use.
Yes, they're comfy too.
When you think of Mexican fabrics, you know you're getting thick, hardwearing material. It will hold you securely and won't fray. And the comfort factor is there too. You feel properly supported by the sturdy, hardwearing fibres that can lull you off into a relaxed zone or even a deep sleep every night.
Sizes, shapes, colours galore!
Our Mexican hammocks come in various sizes, depending on the amount of space you need for either yourself or several people. They start with the loose but strong weave of the Mexican Cotton Hammock Chair (which also comes as a bundle – the Steel Stand with Mexican Chair) if you like reclining in a semi-upright position.
Then there's the luxurious Double Mexican Queen size hammock that has enough space for two people and takes a weight up to 200kg. And finally, for a whole lot of fun with the entire gang, there is the ultimate Family Kingsize hammock, which can comfortably fit four people with a total weight of up to 250kg. That's the one that tends to get the pets in on the act and results in a bunch of happy snaps frequently appearing on our Facebook page.
ORIGIN OF MEXICAN HAMMOCKS
We'd want to offer you some background on what a Mexican hammock is, how they're created, and what sets them apart from other hammocks.
The fact that they were created and originated in Mexico is self-evident. They are hand-woven in the same traditional fashion as they have been for thousands of years. It's what sets them apart from most other types of hammocks. Indigenous Mayan Mexicans have woven them in Yucatan's state, primarily in and around Merida.
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL
A weaver constructs each hammock from cotton or nylon ropes of various colors. The net hammock is then intertwined in a triple weave to form a diamond weave pattern. This interweave provides a highly robust hammock. But the most fundamental reason for the popularity of Mexican hammocks is that the thousands of individual cords all work together to provide optimum comfort and support. The hammock molds to the shape of the user's body while the weave contouring to the shape of the user's body. It evenly distributes the user's weight across the hammock, ensuring no pressure areas. This design also allows for a wide range of sizes and designs, from modest double hammocks for individuals to King-size hammocks for families, chair hammocks, and resort-style hammocks.
It's something that canvas hammocks with a strong hammock body, such as Brazilian hammocks or camping hammocks, cannot achieve.
The distinctiveness of each hammock is another quality that differentiates Mexican hammocks from others. The string colors and patterns are unique because skilled Mayan weaver handcrafts each hammock. It means that each hammock is a one-of-a-kind work of art, with no two alike. Single-colored hammocks are still available and popular in natural white and various hues.
When compared to other hammocks, Mexican hammocks are of remarkable quality. Factories make mass-manufactured hammocks with low-cost materials and processes. It usually goes through a quick but cheap production. Mexican Hammocks are frequently made in the weaver's home. They have a lot more options for working and caring for their families. As a result, the employee is happier and more fulfilled, with more opportunities to improve their quality of life.
