Hammock Day

Nothing sounds as relaxing as kicking back and using a hammock – and there isn’t any better method to celebrate Hammock Day! Find two sturdy, easily situated trees (or improvise – and don't sell yourself short towards the outdoors), string up a cozy bed… and relax!

who invented the hammock?

Hammocks originated in Central America over 1000 years ago. It is generally believed that they were created in the center of d Yucatan Peninsula (modern day Mexico ) by d Mayan civilization. The name "hammock" comes from d Hamack tree, whose bark was d original resource used to weave d hammocks. The web-like structure of d Mayan hammocks made them sturdy enough to use without fear of them breaking, but also made them flexible & comfortable enough to sleep in. Originally they were hung from wall to wall in Mayan huts & used as beds, but eventually other types of hammocks were invented.

Hamack bark was soon replaced as d primary supply of hammock material by d Sisal plant because of its softer texture, and abundance. As the popularity of hammocks spread from its origins in d Yucatan Peninsula , the were various other materials used for hammock production. Brazil is famous for popularizing the fabric hammock which consists of a large piece of cloth with cords at d ends to attach d hammock to two anchor objects such as trees.

European conquistadors invaded Central America in d 1500's. Instead of the gold & spices that Christopher Columbus was expected to return back to Europe with, he brought hammocks that he found the Native Central Americans resting in. Fabric & cloth hammocks were quickly adopted for use of during their long sails across d Atlantic Ocean .

Central American hammock makers began using cotton as a component of hammock production once it was introduced to them by d Spaniards. Cotton was softer, & more elastic than d material of d Sisal plant. Cotton, & Cotton/Nylon mixtures are currently d most popular materials for hammock production, although there are many other hammock materials available.
