Macrame makes a vintage comeback

Macrame makes a vintage comeback

Wednesday 19th August 2020

If you're as old as me, then you will remember back in the 1970's when our mums went mad on making or buying Macrame plant hangers and they were so cool and trendy and literally everywhere? If you aren't as old as me and don't remember, then you're in luck! Macrame is back with a bang...and I am as obsessed with it now as my mum was way back in the vintage years of the 70's!

We have just taken delivery of a whole bunch of 100% recycled Macrame rope, string and yarn - recycled from waste from the fashion and textile industry. No dyes, chemicals or water is used in the production process, contributing to the protection of the worlds resources and the environment.
And as well as being recycled and environment friendly, these yarns are beautiful! Pastel and neutral colours which would compliment any home, whether knotted up into a wall hanging or plant holder, or crocheted into a bag or a rug.

Our full range can be found here, and if you use the code 1970 at the checkout you will get free delivery on your order. Your house can now be as vintage and retro as you like!!

For some great project ideas, this book is just brilliant! It has lots to have a go at from simple little projects to more complicated items that will keep you quiet for days....

We would love to see any of your Macrame makes and feature them on our Instagram feed - so get knotting and have some fun!
