Where to Buy Cotton Rope in Malaysia?

We sell these cotton cord ropes in various sizes suitable for all your craft projects. They are 100% cotton and not chemically bleached, which makes them very natural.

Just so you know, there are many types of macrame ropes in the market, some of which are dyed while others are stiff due to the chemicals used.

Macrame weaving has been around since the 13th century and was done by the Arab weavers back then. It has always fascinated many, and from the ’60s to the ’80s, it was also popular here in Malaysia.

However, since the turn of the century and the rise of digital technology, fewer people have ventured into this skilled hobby.

In recent years, a few people in Malaysia have started to bring this trend back to life, and some of them are also seen selling their creations at craft bazaars in shopping malls around Malaysia.

Buying Cotton Cord Rope in Malaysia

For those wanting to know where to buy cotton cords in Kuala Lumpur, I would recommend that you visit our shop to see and feel the different materials and sizes we sell.

Making macrame is not something where you order your materials online and then work on your projects.

We sell two main types of cotton cords which is very suitable for your macrame or other projects. One is a very soft type of cotton, while the other series is a slightly thicker material.

The cords also come in twist finish or braided finished, where some makers prefer one to the other.

Serious makers will want to buy the correct macrame materials for their projects as the quality reflects the overall design’s overall finishing.

Cotton Cord Rope Colors

While you may have seen multiple colours available online, those are mainly chemically dyed. At Green Daun, we only sell natural-coloured materials, which is off white or beige. That is the natural colour of the cotton and non chemically treated.

If you are looking for pure white types of cotton cords or any other colours, we are sorry not to stock those. You may look for them elsewhere.

But if you want the original macrame cotton cord materials, you have found the right place for these.

How Do We Sell The Cotton Cord?

We sell the macrame cords in bundles or rolls. Each of them come in different lengths according to the sizes. We used to sell them in yards or meters but no longer offer that choice.

Most makers will choose to get an entire bundle to create their projects as you never want to run out of materials by buying just enough.

Anyway, you can always use the excess cotton cord materials for some other projects.

How Much Do They Cost?

The cotton cord price range is anywhere from RM7.50 to RM150.00, depending on the sizes. For a full price list, it is best to drop by our shop.

We are strong believers that it is always best to touch and feel them for some materials before buying them. We have also heard many cases where makers purchase cheap materials online only to find out they have been duped.

This is quite common when you buy online from sellers who do not know their product. After paying for the items, they either arrive as wrong items or sizes or never arrive.
