We’ve had bell-bottom pants and tie-die shirts, but the recent revival of this latest 70es trend actually got me excited – I’m talking about macramé, of course!
I love the intricate handiwork and the complex patterns created by knotting the strings of yarn. I love that no two pieces are the same, and that there are a myriad of ways to get creative. Macramé is a great way of introducing new and different textures and more natural materials into your home – it’s not surprising that macramé is often used in combination with plants, succulents, and cacti.
I have the biggest heart eyes for any combination of white macramé with natural, raw, untreated wood, such as pieces of driftwood. I haven’t gotten any macramé items in my house yet, but I’m actively browsing for some plant hangers or a little hanging shelf.
So here are some of my favorite finds from around the web (click images for links):
Are there any fellow macramé lovers out there? I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts and tips about DIY-ing macramé pieces, and of course if you know any artists here in Copenhagen or Denmark, I’m all ears – let me know in the comments!
