Macramé, the knotted art form that took over home interiors in the ’70s, is in a roaring renaissance. Whether as wall decoration, hanging planters, or purses, macramé can now be spotted in trendy shops and all over social media. If you’re ready to make your own designs, get equipped with a good-quality cord. Many are cotton but distinct in their texture, thickness, and composition. Some cords consist of multiple strands braided or twisted together; others are made of a single strand. To find the right one, consider your design’s intricacy, whether it will support a lot of weight, and if you prefer neat or frayed finishes. Ultimately, finding your favorite cord might be a matter of experimentation, to allow your hands to learn the feel of what’s best.
