A crafting technique using knots to create various textiles, Macrame is an intriguing form of art that many might be unaware of in India as it has gained popularity recently. One can make plant hangers, wall hangings, bags, and various items with Macrame. Macrame is super boho-chic and is a handmade process, making the items ten folds better considering the love and hard work that has gone into each creation. As the concept spreads around India, several local artists indulge in this practice, creating gorgeous pieces, but these are the ones that stood out to us!
