“Bags are a timeless accessory. We always need one and they cover a wide range of possibilities, sizes, colors, models, seasons, etc. I’ll show you how to make this super comfortable and practical macramé beach bag. An accessory you can fill with your things and take everywhere. It’s made with a technique I’ve called “tapestry macramé”, since it’s reminiscent of the technique used for crochet. In this case, it consists of tying knots alternating colored cords making different motifs within the design.” María Eugenia @buyi.macrameart.

BUYI Macramé Art
My name is María Eugenia, but my nickname has always been BUYI, which is where the name of my brand comes from. I’m inspired by nature, natural décor with boho and rustic vibes. For my simple and authentic designs, I use natural fibers such as cotton, linen, jute, and raffia. Being able to create a piece with just my hands and cords, without using any tools, is magical. I also feel like macramé is a way to meditate in motion, because it requires my full concentration. It gives me inner balance that results in limitless creativity. So, I encourage you to make this macramé beach bag with simple knots.
