Do you know when #macrame came in to world

Macrame is a form of weaving that is produced using knotting techniques (rather than weaving or knitting)

#Kavandoli macrame is one type that is used to form both geometric and freeform patterns like weaving. Kavandoli style is mainly done in single knot, double knot half knot. Sometimes reverse half joints are used to maintain balance when working on the left and right halves of a balanced piece.

Leather or fabric belts are another accessory often created using macramé techniques. Most mutual friendship bracelets between school children and teens are created using this method. Vendors at parks, malls, seasonal fairs, and other public places may sell jewelry or macrame ornaments, too
