Let me tell you about my favorite hobby, macramé. Macrame is an ancient form of textile-making that has been around for thousands of years. It is believed to have originated in Arabia and then spread to other parts of the world, including Europe and the Americas. Macrame was used as a way to create decorative and functional objects, such as clothing, bags, and wall hangings.
In the 1970s, macrame experienced a resurgence in popularity as a craft and became associated with the bohemian and hippie lifestyle. During this time, macrame was used to create a variety of items, including plant hangers, wall hangings, and belts.
Today, macrame continues to be a popular form of DIY, home decor, and fashion accessory with many people incorporating it into their homes and wardrobes as a way to add a touch of texture and warmth. With its versatility and ease of use, macrame is a craft that is accessible to people of all ages and skill levels.
Overall, the history of macrame is a testament to the timelessness and versatility of this ancient craft, and its continued popularity is a testament to its enduring appeal.
I love creating unique pieces of macrame and teaching others how to make them too. The nice thing about macrame is that it is forgiving and if you mess up then you can open the knots again and start over. I always try to put my own unique spin on all my macrame projects which you can find here. I’m sure there is something you will like.
