Macrame is a type of textile created using knotting techniques and patterns, as opposed to weaving or knitting. The knots are square and form full-hitch and double half-hitches. The craft required only inexpensive and accessible materials like cotton twine, hemp, leather or yarn, with various beads used to enhance the piece.
The history of macrame is very interesting as some believe that the term comes from the 13th-century Arabic word migramah, which means "fringe" Others believe its origins lie in the Turkish word makrama, which refers to "napkin" or "towel" and was a way to secure pieces of weaving by using excess threads along the top or bottom of woven fabrics.
