Macramé Workshop in the community of Buena Vista, Las Vegas, Santa Bárbara

CEPUDO instructors carried out a workshop on the millenary technique of macramé, technique of ropes or fine ties of knots. The Persians and Assyrians invented it and extended it through most of Africa. Because of its proximity, the Arabs exploited it in Europe and extended it to a large part of this territory. They later took it to America, especially to the Caribbean countries, where the inhabitants learned this great skill. They learned to make hammocks, which they used for sleeping or resting in addition to its commercialization.
