Getting Your Knickers in a Twist

A while back Chain Creative blog featured a photo of some paper samurai underwear knotted with Solomon knots. She had visited the Antwerp Museum of Fashion which had an exhibition on paper clothing last year.
The Solomon knot is used in both macrame and crochet; we macramers usually refer to it as a square knot or flat knot.

Galit Mastai has Aritzia All Tied Up!

Galit Mastai was busy last year creating macrame installations for Aritzia stores across Canada and the US

From Making Macramé with Aritzia by Galit Mastai:
Here's a bit about one of the projects that kept me busy in 2009.... I was enlisted by the Store Design team at Artizia, to make 70 huge, 1970's-inspired Macramé wall hangings for 6 new Aritzia stores that opened across Canada and the USA, namely Victoria, Edmonton, London and Toronto in Canada and Portland, Oregon and Short Hills, New Jersey.
