Knotted Creations Macrame
For the love of macramé is making a strong comeback in 2022. I remember doing macramé in art class in elementary school, I wasn’t great at it but I remember loving the texture of the yarn. I was so excited to see Sara at our local arts market. Her work was so beautiful and only made better by her story.
The history of macramé begins somewhere in the 13th century where weavers used the knots to keep loose ends secure. Another interesting fact is that macramé was used in several different types of applications including those intricate knots used my sailing merchants. As the practice continued to be handed down it founds its way into noble households including the queen of England.
Fast forward to the 1960’s and 1970’s and macramé made a huge comeback and was seen in pop-culture, my childhood home had plant hangers, ponchos, and cup towels.
Macramé fits into all kinds of styles, farmhouse, contemporary or industrial. The warmth and texture of the yarn makes it perfect to fill a blank wall anywhere in your home.
