A little history:
Macrame is believed to have originated in the 13th century, by Arab weavers. Sailors made macrame in off hours while at sea.
Macrame was most popular in the victorian era. Though the craze for macramé faded, it regained popularity during the 1970s.
By the early 1980s macramé had again begun to fall out of fashion as a decorative trend.
However macramé has become popular again. This time in the form of jewelry, such as necklaces, anklets and bracelets.
Using mainly square knots, this jewelry often features natural elements such as gemstones, bone or shell.
