Bark of the hammock tree was used to weave these hammocks. Cotton was next to be used to weave these hammocks because bark of hammock tree was not comfortable enough. Since cotton hammocks was not weatherproof, so, need to introduce some other fabric was very much there. Hammocks made of canvas cloth were introduced by Europeans which were basically designed for navy. But, these narrow and wood staved hammocks were not too comfortable which gave rise to modern day hammocks.
A very important part of the hammock is the weave it is created in. Many hammocks are flat canvas type hammocks that don't do as good a job as conforming to your body shape like the hand-woven Mexican open weave type. With the open weave generally the smaller the gaps the great comfort and support this gives, yet still allows air to circulate through and around you while resting in your hammock. So hammocks often seen as the mass produced varieties will have large open weaves in rope type cord. These do not support you well and dissuade you from wanting to spend much time in your hammock. Look for the authentic Mexican hand-woven corded hammocks as these provide a very high level of comfort, strength and support.
The last type is string hammocks, which are also called Mayan hammocks. String hammocks are hand woven, and most of them come from Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua or El Salvador. They are reminiscent of tightly woven webs made of fine cotton, in a weave that might take more than a mile of string. String hammocks are the most decorative - they come in exotic, tropical colors, to create a relaxing holiday atmosphere.
