Macramé

macramé: (noun) The art of knotting threads or cords into patterns without the use of tools; An ancient craft that saw a surge in popularity in the 1970’s

My mom used used to weave all my sweaters when I was a baby. Later on, one of my best friends started doing scarves and hats during the winter… and she had made my favorite scarf so far. If you’ve ever made a hemp bracelet or friendship bracelet, you were doing macramé.

Fashion is a cycle and macramé proves it, coming back again from the 70’s early 80’s. The interesting facts of macramé is that it has loose movement and unlimited intricate design possibilities. Updating macramé with slinky, modern textiles has made it a soft look for spring 2011.
