A hammock, used for swinging, sleeping or resting, is a sling made of fabric, rope or netting, which is suspended between two points such as posts or trees.

  • Developed by natives of Central and South America for sleeping.
  • Were later used aboard ships by sailors for comfort and to maximize space.
  • Early hammocks were woven out of the bark of trees.

Hammocks are a symbol of summer, leisure, relaxation and simple easy living.
