Thousand of years ago, the people of Caribbean South America had a need for a versatile but comfortable device to sleep in. Using the supple bark of the Hamack tree, the Latin villagers wove a mesh like net. The net could be hung out of the way, not taking up very much space in the small thatched hut, and was extremely comfortable to sleep and relax in. The woven bed quickly became popular and was soon traded throughout Central and South America.
