The Tommy Hamaca Classic Mayan Hammock is the culmination of years of research designed to produce the finest hammock in the Mayan tradition. Virtually all the beautiful Mayan hammocks on the market today are produced from short staple Yucatan grown cotton, which is perfectly adequate to produce a hammock which can, with care, provide years of comfort. The problem with the cording used is that it is easy to break, fades rapidly, and is subject to snagging. The Mercerized cotton cord used in the Tommy Hamaca Classic Mayan Hammock is seven times stronger, far more fade resistant, and is much smoother to the touch. Additionally, the support harness or “arms” of the Tommy Hamaca replace the universally used UV degradable polypropylene with Dos Elephantes true nylon. This combination of supple strength and weather resistance makes this hammock the epitome of its class. This hammock is so good that the founder of Seaside Hammocks, Tommy Hamaca, put his name on it!
We are proud to announce that our Mexican production partner is now FAIR TRADE CERTIFIED. So all Tommy Hamaca brand products support the communities in which they are produced. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
