DUYAN means to cradle, widely accepted in Filipino culture. A hammock fashioned from fabric strung up on opposite points on the wall or ceiling. The material varies: cloth is common, but there are also duyans made of rattan, hand-woven abaca, lubid (rope) and fishnet material. Some mothers place a thin mat or mattress for duyans that have spaces or gaps in them as added support for the baby's back. For generations, PINOY'S used the duyan for naps or to rock babies to sleep.
