Ecru and cream coloured knotted soft sculpture, 3-dimensional macrame art.

If you landed on this product page because you are shopping for a neutral — white, cream, ecru, natural — macrame wall-hanging, then you know how most macrame is rather neutral-coloured. But it took me 4 years of knotting to get to the point where I wanted to make one. My macrame signature has been a riot of colours, so I resisted making something neutral. Till now. But I HAD to jazz things up. There is the crocheted trim at the top and the overlapping strings of wooden beads. “Discombobulated” is thus named, because, well, look at the different fibre elements and how they are … “same same but different”. Each strand is of a different thickness, and knotted with a different material. I challenged myself to use the cut-offs I saved from other macrame works, and their — often too short — length indeed pushed me to my creative boundaries. Need I mention that the cotton cords were mostly recycled cotton? Initially, I had conceived of this piece was an interactive macrame piece. The idea was of “co-creation”. I knotted the elements, but you decide on their final placement. Eventually though, I had to admit to myself that not all of the possible permutations were equal. “Discombobulated”, as it now stands, is the most balanced composition. It measures 43cm (17 inches) long and 25cm (10 inches) wide, and has a profile about 10cm (4 inches) in thickness. The hook from which it hangs will be included in the shipment, but you could also hang this directly on a nail.



This is a unique piece of art. I have never repeated a design, and I will not reproduce this design either.

It is ready to ship, and comes with the rod/dowel pictured. All you need is a nail that is long enough to hold the dowel.

Please keep in mind that the photos were taken indoor, with a warm white ceiling bulb as illumination. Depending on where you decide to hang the work, you might find the hues just slightly warmer or cooler.

This piece is a unique statement that invites conversations about textures and colour palettes. It is my desire and artistic vision that it opens dialogues about waste and recycling.

This is a small/medium artwork, and is what your white wall needs. (No, it doesn’t need more black and white Scandinavian minimalist prints). Hang it above your bed, in your entryway, the side of your stairway, in the living room as part of a photo gallery, above the sofa, in your reading nook…


Fibre artworks come without nails, hooks, or screws. Please arrange for the appropriate method depending on your wall material. Most of my pieces are about 300 to 500 grams heavy.

For fibre artworks that are hung on a metal rod or wooden dowel, it might look curled, crinkled, wrinkled, or crumpled after you unpack. This is because of the packing and the transit. After you hang it up, check for any tangles, and untangle by hand. Pompoms can be reshaped with a few squeezes. Use a steamer to straighter the fibres, or use a wide-toothed comb. Avoid fine-toothed combs or detangling combs. After hanging, the fibres will relax and regain their original appearance.


Dust the artwork regularly. A simple shake will do the job. Do not wash or vacuum clean. Be careful not to pull with force. Fibre artworks with an elaborate and long fringe are not suitable for households with curious cats or grubby children’s hands, or for locations with strong sunlight or a draft. A more detailed care guide is included in the package.
