From my new clients +Boutique Mexico , gorgeous handmade hammocks from Yucatan to celebrate National Hammock Day! 
 
Happy National Hammock Day! We are delighted to bring these beautiful handmade hammocks to you from Yucatan, Mexico.  The perfect place to relax this summer! 

This is a fair trade product, which means that the product improves the conditions of the local communities on several levels and enhances the quality of life of its employees. This coop also sponsors scholarships for local Mayan students to be able to attend university.
