The hammock was first used between 450-404 B.C. by one of Socrates students. Sometime in the 1700s, it is reported that Christopher Columbus brought the hammock back to Europe from the islands he had explored. In their early days, hammocks were constructed with tree bark sisal leaves. Today's hammocks are constructed with fabrics such as cotton, polyester, Nylon, Olefin and Nylon Silk. Along with the many fabrics used to make hammocks, the design styles have improved.
One more thing you should know is that rope and fabric hammocks can have spreader bars at the ends or be stave-less (traditional hammock without bars). You might think that spreader bars add comfort, but in fact it is the other way around - hammocks without the bars are more comfortable, because they wrap around your body better. If for appearance reasons you prefer hammocks with spreader bars, go for hammocks with 3 hanging points instead of just 2 - these have much less chance of tipping over.
