What is Macramé?
Macramé comes from a 13th-century Arabic weavers' word migramah meaning "fringe". It has long history and developed by many different cultures, every single culture gave it's own colors and meanings.
Macramé is a form of textile-making using knotting techniques. It was also long crafted by sailors, especially in elaborate or ornamental knotting forms, to decorate anything from knife handles to bottles to parts of ships.
Nowadays, with the development of more types of materials and colors, of course a lot of creative minds, Macrame became one of the most popular way to creating jewelry and wall hanging decorations.
