Macrame

Macrame is the art of knotting.  It has a rich history and was believed to have started in the 13th century by Arabian weavers who would use their excess material to knot fringes and edgings on towels, shawls and even veils.  

The art was spread to different parts of the world by Sailors who would create their own macrame projects during the long months at sea.  They would use ropes and cords fond on their ship.   

Today, with the huge variety of cords and threads available, macrame has changed and grown as an art.  Micro-Macrame (the art of macrame with smaller thicknesses) has emerged and one can now find patterns to macrame almost anything, from wall hangings, to stuffed animals to purses and of course jewelry.  

All sizes of Chinese Knotting Cord can be used to Macrame.
