MACRAME. You’ve probably seen or heard this word somewhere before, whether it was over 50 years ago (my mother tells me it was a very popular fad back in the 1970s) or in the last few years or so. to tell me that everything that was cool “back in her day” is becoming cool again today. While I wouldn’t necessarily say “everything”, this is definitely true in the case of macramé.
What is Macramé?
The French word “macramé” roughly translates to mean “hand knotted.” So when people talk about macramé, they’re referring to a textile, typically made of cotton yarns or cord, produced using an intricate array of knots and knotting techniques. Authentic macramé pieces are made by hand, so no two are ever exactly alike.
Sometimes you can find macramé elements present in furniture, such as hammocks, and hanging chairs. While a cushion is a bit more subtle, furniture with macramé detailing really promotes a laidback and chilled out feeling.
A Macrame hammock can be made from the simplest of ingredients: two poles for the ends, cord for the middle and two eyebolts or some extra rope with which to hang the finished work of art. It’s draped with long-hanging, metallic fringe and beaded detail, leaving you in an island mindset. Finished with braided loops for hanging, it’s the perfect addition to your living room or patio.
