So who invented Macrame? Many believe the term “macrame” comes from the Arabic word migramah, or “fringe.” is is believed that the first known “macrameers,” were 13th-century Arabic weavers .
The earliest forms of macramé can be found in the carvings for Assyrians and Babylonian cultures.
Macrame was also really popular in the 70s, my mother used to make macrame owls and plant hangers. She used to sell her Macrame wears at the local craft markets and even created some macrame vests using leather fringing.
