How we Started

Two days before lockdown 2020, I purchased every type of craft material you could possibly think of. After trying everything from cement to make pot plants, to wax to make candles, I knew I needed to keep busy while being in lockdown on my own. One of the items was a ball of rope and I started experimenting with macrame (thanks Mikhalia). After months of Isolation and experimenting making items such as plant hangers, yoga mat straps and even a clutch purse, using different Knots, I came up with “ I So Knot” . A play on words for the isolation and the knots of the macrame and how it helped with the knots in my stomach caused by the stress of this period.

 

 Our Story

I am a flight attendant for a major airline in South Africa, with flights grounded during lockdown and my salary being placed on hold, I decided to something instead of numbing out on Netflix. During the winter months I taught myself macrame. After watching a million and one videos during the winter months, I taught myself how to create these different knots to make different items and I made my first plant hanger.

Being the perfectionist that I am, macrame allows be undo knots and try again without having to start a project over each time a mistake is made. This helped me actually enjoy the process more. I started to make some items for friends who convinced me to put myself out there and try sell some of the items I had made. It’s really about your self worth and shutting out the negative critical voice in your head.
