For the Love of Macrame

Macrame

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.

Sara has always loved anything vintage and anything art related.  From those two loves she zeroed in on macramé and it’s warm beauty.  One of the many things that I loved about Sara’s work is that the cord she uses for her work is 100% sustainable and recycled!
 
As a new mom Sara wanted to have something of her own and macramé fit perfectly into her busy schedule.  She is self-taught from 2020 and has created quite a little business for herself. In 2021 she began showing at local art’s markets and has just opened Fox & Fowl at the Pecan Park Farmers Market.  Her creations are more than just things to hang on the wall, she has incorporated macrame into purses, keychains, baby items and of course plant hangers.  
 
 
  

Macrame History

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.
