Mexico, Yucatan Peninsula
We traveled deep into the interior of the Yucatan Peninsula searching for the finest hammock weavers. We found what we were looking for in the small Mayan-speaking town of Tixkokob. Traditional methods are used to weave cotton, hemp, or silk fibers into these incredible cocoon-like hammocks. A hammock made of the finest weave, called “crochet”, takes a weaver 5 weeks or more to complete.
