Hello knitters ! We hope that everything is going well on your side. Today, for once, we're not going to talk about wool, knitting or even needles. We are going to leave our comfort zone ! This article is entirely dedicated to the world of macramé. Do you know it ? We invite you to continue reading the next few lines in order to initiate yourself to this practice and so that macramé has no more secrets for you !
To summarize, macramé is a traditional technique of weaving strings or ropes that are successively tied by hand. Created by Arab weavers in the 13th century, macramé then developed in Spain and the rest of Europe. Today, macramé is a great fashion phenomenon and has become a must-have decoration accessory in recent years. You want to give a bohemian chic look to your interior? Go for macramé !
As far as knots are concerned, there is a wide variety of them depending on the project. In fact, some macramé professionals challenged themselves to create a different knot every day for a year... and they succeeded! Moreover, if you combine several different knots together, the possibilities of creation become infinite.
There are 3 types of nodes that we characterize as "basic nodes" to know:
With the help of macramé, you can not only create decorations for your home to give your interior a bohemian style but you can also create accessories to perfect your clothing style.
As far as decoration is concerned, you can opt for wall or floral hangers to dress up your living room, a hanging mirror for your entrance or cushions to enhance your sofa.
For your clothing style, you can succumb to a macramé belt that will accompany your best jeans or a net bag style tote bag to do your daily shopping or go to the beach during your vacation.
