The old ways are almost gone and for his sons to be so ignorant is a shame. I would pay to learn his hammock making skill! Very few care about tradition. Thank you for sharing this insightful video! Much appreciated!!!

shame when you don't know, that would sell in the U.S. for $250-300 dollars because it's hand made with natural material from nature

Wow! I really wish I know how to make a hammock! It's very wonderful to see how he did it. Wish younger generations these days would gain some knowledge from elders like him & get to learn to do things naturally, so that traditions like these would continue into the future for our children.
