FAQs

Macrame is an ancient textile art form that dates back over 6,000 years. It involves knotting rope or cords to create decorative art pieces and utility items, such as baskets, wall hangings, handbags, and plant hangers.

Macrame has been making a comeback recently as a hobby for people of all skill levels. It’s a great way to express your creativity and make beautiful things for your home or to give as gifts.

If you’re interested in trying macrame, the first step is to learn some basic knots. This will provide you with a solid foundation to build on.

As you try to master a knot, practice tying it over and over again on a piece of cord. Once you have a good feel for one knot, try another. Muscle memory is what you’re going for. You want to be able to tie each knot without having to stop and think about it.

The Square Knot is a good one to learn first. The Larks Head, Double Half Hitch, Alternating Square Knots, and Spiral Knot are other knots to try.

You'll also need some macrame supplies. The cord is the most important, so pick from the great variety at GANXXET. A sharp pair of scissors and a flexible tape measure are also crucial.

Once you gather your supplies, it’s time to try a macrame project. As a beginner, it's best to select a simple pattern and work up from there.

Most patterns include photos to guide you through the process. It’s also helpful to watch some tutorials on YouTube for a visual demonstration of how to macrame.

As you tie knots in the cord, your project will begin to take shape. And if you make a mistake, simply untie your knot and try again. The important thing is to take your time and enjoy the process of creating!

In the fiber arts world, many people use the words string, cord, rope, and braided cord interchangeably or simply refer to them all as "yarn." But there are differences between them, especially in terms of thickness and flexibility.

String is the thinnest and most flexible of the bunch. It’s typically a single, thin strand of cotton or synthetic material.

Cord is a slightly thicker, less flexible version of string. It’s often made from several strands twisted together and is stronger than string.

Rope is more sturdy than cord, since it's made by separating cords into sections and then twisting them together.

Braided cord is a combination of three or more cords twisted together in a braid-like tube so it doesn't easily unravel.

Now that you understand the basics, it's time to tackle your first macrame project. Start with something small, like a yoga mat carrying strap or bracelet.

Once you’ve gotten the hang of the art, move on to bigger projects, like wall hangings and plant hangers. You can even use macrame to make handbags or holiday decorations. Let your imagination be your guide, and have fun!
