everything you need to knot along

At Modern Macramé, we often find ourselves dreaming of far-off lands and distant, sandy shores. It was in this flight of fancy that we dreamed up the Naxos Garland.

Named for our favorite Greek island, this verdant swag employs a fun yet simple braiding technique that is ever-so satisfying to knot up when you get the hang of it.

Punctuated by two brass triangle beads, we picture this piece strung across the bar at a party for some added Dionysian flair, festively festooning the banister at a holiday gathering or simply draped above the headboard of your bed to spruce up your intimate interior space.

However you see fit, we are sure you will find the perfect place for this versatile bit of bunting.

Founder, Chief Creative Officer, Author

Emily has taught macramé to thousands around the globe, from private lessons, to beautifully curated workshops, to team building for creative companies. Her aim is to not only share her love of this simple craft, but also inspire people to be better versions of themselves.

Emily has been featured in Forbes, The LA Times, London Daily Mail, Buzzfeed, Nylon Magazine, Ku:nel, Popeye Magazine, and Elle Japan, Elle NL, and Elle France to name a few.

Her first book, Modern Macramé, 33 Stylish Projects for Your Handmade Home, was released by Ten Speed Press in May 2018.

Modern Macramé grew out of Emily's observation of a lack of accessible and high quality materials for crafters and fiber artists, and so in 2014, the company was born.
