2000 Years of History
Purchasing a Mexican Hammock means you are buying an authentic, quality product, with a design that provides unsurpassed comfort. Originating from Central America, Indians handcraft each hammock, using traditional methods and weaves perfected over the last 2000 years. Mexican Hammocks are lightweight, compact and versatile, ideal for campers, trampers and holiday makers. Even in the most urban setting, patio or backyard, they are durable, colourful, comfortable and simple to set up and take down. Made from 70% cotton and 30% nylon, Mexican hammocks are strong enough to hold two adults. (average holding weight 200kg).
Mexican hammocks are designed to be used diagonally not lengthways. This gives fantastic back support and loads of space.

To Hang the Hammock
The knot shown in fig (a) is simple to do, and can easily be undone after use. "S" hooks fig(b) easily attach where the rope meets hammock loops, and are handy when taking the hammock down. fig(c) shows a 'bowline' knot, which (after a little practice) we suggest you use when tying your hammock rope to a tree or similar support.
Never hang hammock loops directly onto a fixed hook, as the repetitive swinging action will eventually damage the end loops.
The Hammock can also hang from the wall to the ceiling, given the correct length of chain or rope.
