Macrame: Travelling through time to uplift your walls

The Babylonians (18th - 6th century BC) and Assyrians (25th century - 612 BC) would weave Macrame decor and apparel.

As cross-border trade, the discovery of new lands and invasions became prominent, the art travelled across the globe. It reached the Arab kingdoms and European territories. In the 17th century, Macrame was presented in Queen Mary II’s court and she passed it on to other ladies of her palace.

Interesting to note is the fact that this craft was not limited to women artisans. Sailormen would indulge in the craft of tying knots in decorative fashion in their free time. In fact, this recreation activity helped Macrame travel the world!
