Macrame Care and Cleaning

Cotton fiber comes from a cotton plant, which makes it a 100% natural material. Cotton is soft and pleasant to touch, yet it is very durable. To ensure your new macrame art lives a long a happy life, please follow our instructions on proper care and maintenance.

Hanging your macrame

  • Cotton fiber macrame pieces are meant to be used indoors. If you plan on hanging your art outdoors, ensure you protect it from the sun and water exposure.
  • Keep the fibers away from an open flame (candles, fireplaces)

Cleaning your macrame

Dust/dirt accumulation

  • Spot clean with white, damp cloth using a mild detergent
  • Always use cold water to prevent shrinkage
  • Avoid any detergents with bleach
  • To dry, hang in a well ventilated area

Spilled coffee/wine

  • Clean while the stain is fresh
  • Run your item under the cold tap through the back of the stain for 3-5 minutes, and then rub the stain gently
  • Use mild detergent as needed

Be on a lookout for pests

  • Like any other natural fiber (for example, wool or silk) cotton can become a food source for various pests. To prevent this from happening, make sure to remove any dust at least once a month from your macrame by using a white damp cloth and duster.


  • You can iron or use a steamer on your macrame piece to remove any wrinkles caused by washing or shipping
