The Art of Macrame: Bag by Your Own Hands
The art of knotted weaving macrame has been known since the times of Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece. Then it began to be used in Assyria, Iran, Japan and China. Europe met with him in the VIII - IX centuries. The history of the development of macrame is rooted in the history of navigation. It is the sea knots and their combinations that formed the basis of decorative weaving. There are more than four thousand sea knots, some of them are complex and beautiful. The combinations of these nodes formed the basis of the first schematic drawings of macrame. Currently, there are six kinds of weaving and hundreds of different nodules.
The main thing for doing beautiful work is to choose the right material. The most suitable materials for weaving are leather, cords, vegetable fibers, sisal, fishing line, linen thread, jute, twine, fine wire, yarn (woolen, silk, cotton) and some synthetic materials. The material for weaving should be strong, moderately twisted and pliable for proper tightening of nodules. In addition to materials, to start working, you still need to select the appropriate tools: scissors, needle, ruler, metal spokes, hook, spindle, cusps and pads. When the preliminary preparation is complete, we can start the weaving. It's rather complicated and laborious manual work - macrame. Bag and wall panel, bracelet and bracelet, belt and waistcoat, blouse and dress are obtained equally well in this technique.
