Wait a minute. How can macrame be anything like magnificent? Isn’t macrame that hippie way of making plant hangers?
Yes and no. Macrame has been used to make plant hangers and cheesy wall hangings, yes, but that’s not the limit. The technique has been around for centuries and can be used in far more exotic ways.
Take, for example, this handsome shawl in wool mohair by Burberry:
It’s utterly elegant and completely feminine with lots of pretty openwork. Being mohair, it’s also interesting texturally. Being made by Burberry, you know it’s built to last, too. Then there’s the bit about it being on sale at Neiman Marcus.
The regular price is $595.00, but if you buy right now, it’s been marked down to just $268.00!
Oh, and did I mention the free shipping? Now through June 8, use shipping code NMSHIP to get free shipping, no matter what your total (certain restrictions apply, see site for details).
One thing I should mention, though, that gorgeous eggplant color is gone. You’ll have to be contented with either classic black or an elegant, versatile medium gray. Ah well, the little sacrifices we make….
