National Hammock Day

What is National Hammock Day? July 22nd commemorates the universal symbol for taking a break from our hectic lives, kicking back and relaxing in a hammock. Situated just in the middle of the summer, National Hammock Day celebrates everything related to relaxation, enjoying minutes of bliss, summer breezes and just "hanging out." 

If you don’t already have a swaying place to relax, now is the time to do it. If you want to keep a sense of tranquility and enjoyment around your home, a hammock is a must!

The History of Hammocks

Hammocks were created by the Mayans in Central America thousands of years ago. Hammocks were originally created for protection from the elements, wild animals and rodents on the ground. The name ‘hammock’ is derived from a Spanish word hamaca. It is said that the original versions of hammocks were made out of the bark of a tree called hamack.

Over the years, modern hammocks have been developed for sleeping and resting. Nowadays, hammocks are made of canvas fabric, macrame, rope or netting, however they all serve the same purpose... RELAXATION. 

The beautiful summer weather is perfect for laying on a hammock or hammock swing chair and enjoying some time with nature or under the stars.

Hammocks and hammock swing chairs are super easy to install indoors or outdoors and yet the transformation is incredible!
