You Can’t DIY This: 12 Fiber Artists Taking Macrame to the Next Level

You Can't DIY This: 12 Fiber Artists Taking Macrame to the Next Level.

While our craft projects do a great job of hanging our plants and covering bald walls, there are echelons of macrame we hadn’t even dreamed of. We’ve been swept up in the DIY wallhanging trend and, just as we were starting to feel like pros, these pro fiber artists put us to shame! While we wouldn’t call them all macrame persay, it’s the natural materials and sculptural complexity in all these pieces that we love.

1. Windy Chien

We love Windy’s work, “The Year of Knots” in which a knot was added every day for a year.
