Macramé is the art of tying knots to create beautifully patterned textiles. Many believe that the word macramé comes from the Arabic word ‘migramah’, which translates to ‘fringe.’ Back in the 13th century, Arabic weavers used macramé to create decorative fringes on shawls and veils. However, others claim that knot-tying extends back even further, all the way to third-century China. Lanterns, hangings, and ceremonial garments from this era sport elaborate knots, and the famous pan chang knot is considered by some to be an ancient form of macramé.
