What Is Macramé?
Macramé is a craft using creative knotting techniques to produce decorative textiles, homewares and accessories. Macramé usually uses specialist macramé cord (also known as macramé rope or yarn), which is soft to the touch, ties and knots well with a strong, durable hold. Macramé crafters often incorporate accessories such as macramé rings, beads and dowels into their pieces.

When Was Macramé Invented?
Macramé might seem like a fairly modern craft, due to its strong associations with the 1970s hippie movement. However, the origins of macramé can be traced as far back as Babylonian times, with evidence of decorative knot tying being used to adorn costumes. This practice became more established during the 13th century when Arabian weavers began using decorative knots and fringes on towels, shawls and other textiles. In the UK, the practice of macramé has flourished during different eras, thanks to trends and interest in crafting. Its popularity soared in the late 1800s and then again in the 1970s. Recently, a renewed interest in crafting along with a revival of bohemian styles, has brought macramé back into favour once more.
