Art of Macramé originated in the 13th century with Arab weavers. Macrame is a form of textile produced using knotting (weaving or knitting) technique. Artisans knotted threads and yarns along with hand-loomed fabrics in decorative fringes. Bath towels, shawls, and veils are a few examples. The Primary knot of macrame is the square and forms of hitching.
Sailors crafted macrame objects when they are not sailing at sea. They crafted objects to cover anything from knife handles to bottles to parts of ships. They sold and bartered when landed. Therefore the art spread to places like China. They made hammocks, bell fringes, and belts from macramé.
Popularity for Macrame gained in the Victorian era. This art was used to make household items like table cloth, bedspreads, and curtains. Macrame resurged in the 1970s. Wall hanging, clothing accessories, plant hangers, and jewelry were popular object crafted.
Materials used include cords made of cotton twine, linen, hemp, jute, leather or yarn.
