Unlike the standard macramé, micro- macramé is done using thinner and finer threads, whether it’s cotton, synthetic, silk or sirma. The thickness of the threads usually ranges from 0.5 to 2 mm. To make objects using micro-macramé, a lot more knowledge, precision and patience is needed, as well as knowledge of various decorative knots, and therefore it is not the most suitable for beginners. Jewelry, fashion details and other decorative items are mainly made using micro-macramé, so other items like beads, buckles, decorative stones and minerals are used in order to complete the macramé patterns.

The book „Macramé – the art of tying knots“ is done as a manual for everyone interested in Macramé. It contains over 120 drawings and 150 photographs in color. For the beginners, everything that’s needed was given to successfully learn Macramé. The detailed instructions were given for making knots, Cavandoli bindings, strings and cords, decorative beginnings, circled bindings, clothing items, and all other interpretations that are needed for successful realization of the projects. For those that know Macramé, the works in this book could serve as inspiration for future creative activities.
