Art of Macrame 搭船時，留意到漁民、水手也有Macrame 編織技巧。😊 The Arabs were the reason for the propagation of macrame in Europe. They traveled throughout most of the continent from the deserts in the Middle East to towns near Asia and Africa. Eventually, sailors picked up the techniques and integrated it with their own knot tying methods. The sailors already use the reef knot, or the square knot, for rope tying. Soon, the sailors combined the square knot with other types of knots to make beautiful patterns in their works. They made useful items, like bell pulls, lanyards, rope ladders and steering wheel covers, as well as adornments like hats and belts. They sold their works at each port they stopped, bringing the art of macrame to people in different countries.
