The history of macrame

Macramê means '' node '', which originated from the Turkish word Migramach which means "fringed fabric, ornamental wefts and decorative gallon". It comes from the time of prehistory, it arose when man learned to tie yarns with animal or vegetable fibers, to shelter from the cold and to form hunting objects or utensils. Over time this technique was used by sailors who made their moorings for maritime works, and over time, was expanding in all countries, more and more people perfected and adapted new techniques from us.

In Brazil, the macramê arrived in the colonization with the Portuguese who weaved their dresses and taught the slaves, making these handicrafts not only belong to the noble people.

Line of macrame

As mentioned above, macramê used to be used for human survival, so animal and vegetable fibers were used, because they resembled wool, cotton, flax, sisal and others. Today we can use, in addition to these yarns, the string in general, own lines for the macrame, ribbons, crochet and even knitting line. It is important to choose depending on the work to be done with Macramê, as it will make a big difference in the final result.

We of macrame

In order to perform the macramê works, it is necessary to learn the two main nodes that are: the macrame point and the feston point. Its variations or influences can create other types like: Josefina knot, alternating mid-knot, diagonal double knots, square knot and annoying knot. In addition, it can be used next to the project: stones, beads, seeds and woods. Also a base is used to make the braids without losing the stability when weaving the lines.

The macrame had fallen into the oblivion of many, and when it appeared, about 30 years old, it was thought to be something new, unaware of its real history. Today, we see how much we can innovate using this technique of knots with sandals, bracelets, earrings, curtains, screens, baskets, among others, using creativity in decorations and with materials accessible to the execution.
