What is the origin of macrame ?
Macrame, the star of the 1970s, is making a comeback in decoration. This ancestral art of knotting has been modernized to fit into our contemporary interiors. This creative hobby technique, simple in its approach, allows you to clear your head. Its resolutely bohemian spirit brings warmth and conviviality to any room in the house, and even outdoors.
Macrame is the art of tying knots. Making knots with a rope, a thread, or a piece of wool and without any particular tool like a needle, a hook or anything else. You only use your hands to make macramé!
Indissociable from the bohemian spirit, this decorating trend is a great starting point for a hippie chic atmosphere. Its aerial aspect will bring lightness to your decoration.
Sure, hand-knotted tapestries, plant hangers and accessories filled every nook and cranny in the 1970s and are now making a comeback, but the origins of this craft go back hundreds of years around the world and across the oceans. Let's explore the ancient roots of macramé!
The origin of macrame is generally attributed to 13th century Arab weavers, who used decorative knots to finish the loose ends of handwoven textiles like towels and shawls. Many believe that the term "macrame" comes from the Arabic word migramah, or "fringe." Others believe the term comes from the Turkish word makrama, which refers to towels and dishcloths that used the knotting technique in a similar way. However, decorative knotting can also be traced back to third century China on ceremonial textiles as well as wall hangings.
Regardless of where and when macrame got its name, the technique is actually as old as its basic structure: the knot, which has a seemingly infinite number of variations and countless practical uses.
