Macrame wall hangings are stunning pieces of 3D art created by meticulously knotting and tying fibers like yarn, cotton twine, jute, or hemp into spellbinding designs. These intricate works of art can be monotone in color, or contain an array of fibers in every shade of the rainbow. They are often grand, stretching wide, or hanging long, and they provide an instant shot of texture to any room.
Though macrame wall hangings are popular in today’s homes, minimal and bohemian alike, they got their start thousands of years ago. One of the earliest recorded references to macrame appeared in the carvings of Babylonians and Assyrians, the people who created one of the world’s oldest civilizations! Even then, talented artists and makers wanted to go beyond function, and create something that was simply beautiful to look at.
