Hello, I’m Emmy, owner and creator of @macramemmy. I first learned macramé in May
2019 after attending a workshop at a festival. I fell in love with it there and then, in a very
windy field! I have spent most of my career as a freelance Stage Manager, but more recently
have settled into a job at the Wales Millennium Centre in my hometown of Cardiff.
Unfortunately due to Covid, my role was made part-time, so I decided to make my hobby a
small business to fill my spare days, and @macramemmy was born!
I love to share my creations and create bespoke custom orders for anyone with specific
ideas. All of my pieces are made with natural recycled cotton rope, and I often collect pretty
driftwood from my local beach to use and make each order unique. Please feel free to check
out my Instagram page to see the range of things I can do @macramemmy and see my Etsy
shop here: macramemmy.etsy.com. Or feel free to DM me to discuss a custom order!
Left: A large round mirror with macramé knotted in natural rope around it,
in the shape of a flower mandala. It is mounted on a bedroom wall. There is a large green
leafy plant on a shelf next to the mandala mirror, and a black and white wall hanging to the
right of it.
Middle: A large triangular macramé wall hanging with alternating soft white,
mustard, eucalyptus green and dark green coloured rope. It is knotted onto a long piece of
natural driftwood, and hung with a single piece of rope on a hook, on a cream bedroom
wall. It has spiral shaped macramé strands knotted on either side in the same colours,
hanging down to compliment the central piece. There is a large forest green velvet armchair
underneath with a comfy orange pillow on it. To the right of the hanging on a windowsill,
there is a luscious green ZZ plant in a white and yellow pot.
Right: A bright and cheerful mustard yellow macramé handbag, made with
square shaped knots and tassels, with dark natural wooden handles.]
