About Macrame

Macrame is a technique of tying different kinds of knots to produce decorative items. The true beauty comes from the fact that it is done by hand, not the machine. It can be very detailed, and anyone can do it with a small initial investment and a little practice. It can be a great way to relax and create beautiful pieces for your home or offer as a gift.

If a piece includes at least one macrame knot, it can be considered macrame art. The projects are pieced together with several knots or joined with other techniques, usually knitting or weaving.


When was macrame popular? The origins of macrame date back to the 13th century, when Arabic decorative weavers used knots to secure the loose ends of woven, hand-loomed textiles into decorative fringes. However, some resources even say that macrame origins can be traced further than we think, back to the Assyrian and Babylonian civilizations.

The macrame meaning and name itself are considered to come either from the Arabic word ‘migramah,’meaning ornamental fringe or from the Turkish word ‘makrama,’ meaning towel or napkin. Either way, it regained its popularity nowadays thanks to YouTube, Instagram, and other social networks.
