Hammocks Crafted in Colombia


History of the Hammock

Hammocks were developed by native inhabitants of the CaribbeanCentral America, and South America for sleeping.

Early hammocks were woven out of tree bark, and later this material was replaced by sisal fibers because it was more abundant. One of the reasons that hammocks became popular in Central and South America was their ability to provide safety from disease transmission, insect stings, or animal bites. By suspending their beds above ground, inhabitants were better protected from snakes, biting ants, and other harmful creatures.
