What is Macrame?

Macrame is an art that’s all about knotting, and it’s been around for thousands of years. Carvings from as far back as the Assyrian and Babylonian empires depicted decoration made from knotted designs. Around the world, you can find art made from trying knots.

In the 70s, macrame could be found in all kinds of textile designs in the United States. Today it’s popular again, but the aesthetic has changed a bit. These days, cotton cord is the more popular material. The knotting and overall design style has changed as well, but the general concept is still the same.

What Makes RightRope’s Cord Special?

Our single strand macrame cord is 100% cotton. Single strand means that the cord has many fine threads twisted into one string. It’s made in the USA, unbleached, and has a natural off-white color. Our macrame cord is soft and knots well.

Many industrial cotton ropes on the market are a blend of cotton and synthetic fibers like polypropylene, acrylic, or polyester. When you choose RightRope, you get 100% cotton cord. This means that our cotton ropes are also safe to use with pets and birds.

Macrame Cord vs. Cotton Rope

RightRope’s macrame cord is single twist, and our cotton rope has a different texture and feel. Our cotton rope is also made from 100% cotton, but it features 3 strands twisted together instead of a single strand. Both cotton cord and cotton rope can be used for various craft purposes including macrame designs.

Our macrame cord comes in 4 different weight options: 2.5, 5, 10, or 20 pound tubes. For each tube, we offer 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 mm cord. Our 3-strand cotton rope comes in 11 diameters, sold by the foot. The most popular diameters for macrame crafts are 3/16 inch, 7/32 inch, or ¼ inch. 3/16 inch cotton rope is similar to 5 mm macrame cord.

When your macrame cord arrives you will notice that it’s tightly wound on the tube, making the diameter look smaller than it actually is. As you start to take it off the tube, the cord will loosen up and be easier to work with.

The Right Choice

RightRope’s 100% cotton macrame cord is popular for good reasons. You will get a high quality product at the right price.
