Macramé is a form of textile-making using knotting. Macramé is a type of fiber craft which basically means a pattern of decorative knotting. The skill dates back to the 13th century, when Arabic weavers knotted excess yarn on hand-woven fabrics into elaborate fringes.
Later, sailors helped spread the craft around the world, using rope to make hammocks and belts. Macrame is being re-invigorated with contemporary designs and new materials.
For the uninitiated, macrame’s art lies somewhere between nautical knotting and knitting and can be used to make almost anything from lampshades and rugs to large wall hangings and, for the fearless, some pretty spectacular outfits. Since macramé is all about decorative adjustment of knots, you can learn how to make all knots and make your own style macramé hanging planter.
