Frequently Asked Questions:
What Is Macramé?
Macramé is a craft using creative knotting techniques to make decorative textiles and accessories from macramé cord (also called rope or yarn). It is a technique that has developed over centuries, dating back to Babylonian times when fringe plaiting was first recorded on period clothing. Arabian weavers in the 13th century started to integrate decorative knots into woven fabrics, making the practice much more popular and prevalent. Later, the technique spilled into Europe and became a fashionable trend in England during the 17th century. Macramé became hugely popular in the late 1800s, being used across clothing as well as home furnishings. A century later, the hippie movement brought macramé to the fore yet again as a fitting look for their homespun, more natural & relaxed aesthetics. Today macramé is as popular as its ever been – partly due to a renewed interest in crafting as well as a plethora of blogs and online tutorials making the craft even more accessible & inspirational.
