Macrame is a textile technique that uses knots to create wall art, jewellery, bags, lampshades, plant hangers, containers and even clothing. Some designers are even incorporating macrame into their catwalk designs.
Like other textiles, macrame is 'big' at the moment, in terms of its popularity, the size of the yarns and the constructions that can be made using knots.
Macrame can be combined with other textile crafts as well to create fringing, decorative edges, pockets, cuffs, shoulder artwork.
Macrame jute has come a long way and is available in beautiful colours.
