A brief history of hammocks
A hammock is a sling made of fabric, rope or netting, suspended between two or more points, used for swinging, sleeping, or resting. They originated from a Taino culture Arwakan, a word meaning “fish net.” Originally, hammocks were not designed for leisure, but instead served as protection. The suspended beds safely kept users away from dangerous creatures and insects in warmer climates.
According to my research, traditional hammocks originated in Central America and can be traced back nearly 1,000 years to the Mayan civilization, but Christopher Columbus is credited with bringing hammocks to Europe. In 1492 Columbus discovered the hammock in the Bahamas and he said “People were sleeping in nets between the trees.” When he brought the hammock back to Europe mainly sailors started using them.
Early hammocks were woven from the bark from a hamack tree. This was later replaced by sisal fibers as they were more abundant.
In the United States, hammocks were used as cheap, practical solutions for farmers, and a leisure item for wealthy families.
Today hammocks are particularly trendy among millennials and are used in a variety of ways, especially with the invention of lightweight and portable hammock stands. Hammocking can be a way of hanging out with your pals, and it’s an inexpensive way to spend an afternoon. You don’t have to be in a forest. You can use them in your back yard.
From 2014 to 2016, the market research group NPD found that overall sales of the product had doubled.
