A friendship bracelet is a special, often handmade, piece either created for or intentionally chosen for a beloved friend or relative. Most commonly, they are made with cotton embroidery thread, however other materials such as hemp, linen, or plastic thread are also known to be used. The bracelets’ vibrant designs are created when the crafter either ties or weaves colourful thread in special knotted patterns. This is traditionally done by hand but can also be accomplished with a loom. THE HISTORY
While the exact origins of the knot-tying techniques used in friendship bracelets are a bit unclear, both ancient Chinese culture and Arabian culture are cited as likely having influenced the craft. The Chinese are among the earliest civilizations known to have developed decorative knot-tying techniques, which evolved into fashion accessories and household items, among other things. The art of macramé, where knots are tied into intricate patterns, is cited to have begun in 13th century Arabia. Both having the craft of knotting at their core, it’s easy to see how these cultures can serve as logical precursors of our beloved bracelets.
