There are lots of countries like Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Brazil and Nicaragua, where hammocks have always been used as an essential object. In these countries, hammocks have been used for more than 900 years which is truly fascinating. However, it is thought that hammocks were actually introduced by Mayan Indians in Central America about 1000 years ago.
Joining the two concepts of "stationary" and "hammock" together may appear to be the most counterintuitive suggestion. This is especially true because the stereotypical hammock that people often think about is one that swings between two trees or posts. However, a stationary hammock, otherwise known as a four-point hammock, is in fact the most famous of the kinds of hammock and is used often when camping or lazing around at home.
Breath-ability. Although this is an appealing characteristic for fabrics, in my view it is outweighed in this case by the fact that considerable amounts of pesticides and fertilizers are used to grow cotton. Ironically, these chemicals are of no use in warding off the insects attracted to some hammocks (see below), but their dust remains in cotton rope and presumably in heavy cotton fabrics.
Mayan hammocks are extremely comfortable and provide good ventilation, but don't leave any prints on your skin. They are also very light-weight, so string hammocks can be used for camping or taken to the beach. There is one disadvantage though - it is easy to damage a string hammock. Any sharp object can easily cut the string, so they are not as durable as rope or fabric hammocks.
