Mayan HammocksLa Fuente Imports is now proud to offer hand-woven Mayan hammocks by Gilberto Rivera, a third generation artisan who weaves his hammocks in the same method and the same Oaxacan village as his Mixtec ancestors over a hundred years ago. Woven in a crisscross 'diamond' pattern from high strength nylon chord, Gilberto's hammocks contour to fit the user, allowing tension to spread evenly beneath the body. This makes them effective in relieving backaches and minor body tension, not to mention they're sooo darn comfortable!
Unlike American-style hammocks with spreader bars that tend to be unstable and may even flip you out, Mayan hammocks are designed to envelop your body to keep you safely and comfortably in the hammock. They are also compact and lightweight - perfect for backpacking, camping, or using on cycling tours. As further testimony, Mayan-style hammocks are used on a daily basis by millions of people throughout Latin America and Asia (and millions of people can't be wrong!). So we implore you find a space for one of Gilberto's deadly comfortable Mayan hammocks, choose a size and color from the next page, and the rest is easy. So easy, in fact, that we guarantee you will add hours of effortless relaxation to your life!
