Mayan Hammocks come in a variety of colors that reflect the beautiful, vibrant colors of nature. The hammocks are dyed in shades ranging from the glowing pinks and yellows of tropical flowers to an intense ocean blue. Other colors available include forest green, a deep purple, turquoise, bright red, a soft royal blue, and basic black. Mayan Hammocks are traditionally woven in a combination of these colors to enhance their beauty and ensure that each handmade Mayan Hammock is unique. The clarity of the naturally dyed cotton hammocks is a treat to behold, and will add a vibrancy to your yard or patio with just the right touch of color. Each hammock's combination of colors is carefully woven together for the perfect contrast of the colors chosen. In addition to creating a gorgeous hammock, they are also durable. No matter what your color scheme or decor, Mayan has or can create the perfect color combination.
If the color of your hammock is central to your choice, keep in mind the advantages of each type of hammock. Nylon hammocks will not fade, keeping the original bright intensity of colors throughout many seasons. If you would prefer a firmer, colorfast hammock with colors that will remain true, a nylon hammock may be the best choice for you. Cotton hammocks are also beautiful, although they tend to fade slowly over time to a softer, subdued palette of colors if left outdoors for long periods. However, if you plan to use the hammock indoors, the cotton colors will remain true for many years. Another great advantage of a Mayan Hammock is that they will not stain or discolor clothing.
Because all Mayan hammocks are handmade and hand-dyed, no two hammocks will be the same. The artisans who create them use two different styles of roping. In some, the color of the rope itself is solid, such as an intense purple. Other ropes are made from two colors of cotton thread entwined, such as navy and forest green or burgundy and copper, giving depth and interest to the weaving of the hammock. Different repeating patterns are used to create a stylish stripe of two or more colors in each hammock, with no two patterns alike.
The great thing about Mayan hammocks is that when ordering, you can specify particular color combinations that appeal to you. In most cases, these requests will be honored. If you would like a pleasant surprise, allow them to select the colors for you but make sure you specify any colors you do not want. No matter what color used to create your hammock, your home or yard will be beautifully enriched.
