Anthropologists have, as anthropologists do with so many things, studied the history of hammocks and found that these nylon slings have been around for about 1,000 years and were probably created by the Mayans and other indigenous peoples of Central America. Simply constructed from weaved plant fibers and tree barks, these comfort-facilitating beds made it possible for people to get rest without making contact with any dirt, debris or pesky creatures such as snakes or rodents on the ground.
So, although its makers created this this snug-fitting sleeping vessel as a practical measure, it has become at least slightly more associated as the ultimate symbol of sleeping in leisure. Most of us quickly get the image of a hammock strung between two palm trees on a desolate, yet stunning, beach of white sand under blue skies and sunshine. Perhaps there is a mouth-watering adult beverage somewhere nearby and the sleeper lays with a book splayed across their chest and their hat’s brim covering their face.
