Any Idea Where Does It Come From?

Have you ever thought where does the name ‘hammock’ come from? We should start with the Mayans. They did not only invent the only known written language in Central America back in the 1st century BC, but they also created the world-famous Mayan pyramids. And perhaps even more important, they invented the hammock! Indeed, it is originally woven from hamak trees native to Latin America. Then, the sisal plant replaced the bark due to it is more abundant. So this is where the name comes from. Moreover, the extension trading route established by Indian nations of central and South America, the hammock eventually came into the heart and home of millions of natives. Very soon, its material quickly instead by local fabrics and cloth. That is the original framework of today’s hammocks.

Moreover, you may ask how do hammocks come to Europe? Since Columbus dropped anchor in the ‘New World’, he wished to found boxes with full of treasures, spices, and fine silks. Instead, he found a load of natives of the Bahamas lounging on hammocks. Since then he decided to bring hammocks back to Europe.
