WHAT IS MACRAME ?
DEFINITION OF MACRAME
Macrame is not necessarily known by everyone, so a little explanation of the art of Macrame and its origins can help to understand our passion.
The art of Macrame can be defined as a specific art of weaving rope to make various objects ranging from decorations (curtains, tapestries, etc.) to jewelry.
Generally, weaving is done with natural materials, such as cotton, linen and hemp. However, contemporary art combines the art of weaving with other materials (such as pipes, iron and various other raw materials).
Macrame is therefore the art of knotting: multiple knots and countless combinations can be made. The weaving of the knots must still have an aesthetic aspect, which is why certain types of knots are widely used in all Macrame.
ORIGIN OF MACRAME
The origin of Macrame is not very clear, we do not know who produced the first Macrame.
It is often said that Macrame comes from Arab weavers. And the art spread to Europe with their conquest between the 7th and 13th century.
Sailors have played a lot to answer the practice of Macrame in the whole world. During their long period at sea, they were busy with this practice knowing that sailors are professional knotters. Some knots are even derived from boat knots.
However, we can find in Latin America in Sumerian times, an art that can be defined as Macrame: “the Quipu of the Andes”. Each Quipu was made of multiple strings of wool or cotton and of different colors. A single “quipu” could have hundreds of strings and thousands of knots. The different knots, and the placement of these knots, made it possible to keep track of the accounting. However, to this day, no one has managed to decipher the language of these “quipus”.
Thus, the origins remain unclear.
Today, we see a renewed interest in crafts and textiles, especially in decoration such as knitting and embroidery.
For Annie Legault, the resurgence of Macrame, and fiber art forms, are symptomatic of the abundance of cool, contemporary Scandinavian-style decor.
“I find that everything that is offered on the market is very clean. Wood, metal, hard lines. In an ultra-contemporary home, adding a Macrame lamp, of natural material, creates an opposition that is very interesting. The natural fiber brings warmth, it softens.”
