Macrame

Macrame was all the rage in the 60s and 70s. Every house had at least one pot planter in the patio or an owl wall hanging in the living room. I have seen my grandma carry a macrame bag with her knitting supplies and my mom has a magazine hanger. I find it really cool and think it deserves a come back. Do you?

The owls and trees macrame creations are by Makramilka. To know more about her work or to buy, visit her website (it's in Hungarian).

Check out this wonderful macrame installation at The Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Spring and this hanging chair from Anthropologie.

These are wonderful but nothing like that 35-foot long macrame owl you posted about on 24th August 2011. That lovely, enormous piece inspired me to make my own enormous owl: 'Athena: Goddess of wisdom'.
