Macramé lovers across the globe, this post goes out to you!
I’ve discovered a beautiful small brand with handmade macramé accessories here in Thailand. Take a look at some of these gorgeous pieces!
What I love about macramé is the visible handwork that goes into it and the creativity of the designer. A macramé handbag, wall piece or plant hanger gives your outfit or home that instant exotic touch!
One day I was walking around Bangkok and a small pop-up market caught my eye (it’s one of the things I love about Thailand: unexpected crafts and food markets wherever you go!). Of course I HAD to check it out and good that I did, as it was there that I met Mai and her lovely brand Lamaicraft!
Mai has a passion for macramé which radiates from every piece she makes. She has a background in fashion design but learned how to make macrame pieces herself, through YouTube and Pinterest. What sparked her interest in this knotting technique?
“I fell in love with macramé because of its unique look and the variety of pieces you can make, from bags to curtains and home deco. All my pieces are made from quality cotton cord. I like using natural materials and hope that each one of my bags can mean one less plastic bag!”
I love knowing what I wear is unique and eco-friendly!
Finally, where does the name Lamaicraft come from?
“My nickname is Mai and I added La to it, as ‘Lamai’ means ‘nice and attractive’ in Thai. It’s how I want my brand to be, and it’s the feeling I want to convey to the person wearing my piece!”
