History of Camping Hammock

Why leave comfort at home? With a portable hammock or a hammock chair you can take comfort on the street with you. You can take a portable camping hammock and take the hammock on journeys, hiking or everywhere there are trees.

The term “portable hammock” refers to the Mayan type hanging mat discovered by Columbus’ men when they visited what was called the “New World.” This hammock is different from many of the hammocks you see today that it does not have the spreaders that are often used for making American hammocks. The portable hammock is made instead of entirely of cotton or nylon thread, and woven loose to provide strength and ventilation. Since the portable hammock has no wooden spreaders, they can be easily moved, and they take up very little space when not in use. This type of hammock has been enjoyed for more than 1,000 years and caught early with a woven from tree bark in Central America.
