For those who want to do Macrame, you may be asking where to get cotton cord rope in Malaysia as there are not many places selling these types of materials nowadays.
The good news is that you can find a wide selection of these cotton cord ropes at Green Daun craft shop in Malaysia.
*Update Jan 2020 – Due to a new direction our shop is taking, we no longer sell many of the macrame cords and only have 2mm and 3.5mm cords.
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 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 60’s to the 80’s, it was also popular here in Malaysia.
However, since the turn of the century, and the rise of digital technology, less people have ventured into this skilled hobby.
In recent years, there have been a few people in Malaysia who has 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 just 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 they 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 on the overall finishing of the design.
Cotton Cord Rope Colors
While you may have seen multiple colors available online, those are mainly chemically dyed. At Green Daun, we only sell the natural colored materials, which is off white or beige. That is the natural color of the cotton and non chemically treated.
If you are looking for the pure white types of cotton cords or any other colors, we are sorry as we do not stock those. You may look for them elsewhere.
But if you want the original macrame cotton cord materials, then you have found the right place for these.
What Are The Cotton Cord Rope Sizes
As for the sizes we sell, they range from 1 mm in diameter to 7mm in diameter. The sizes of the cords depends on the type of macrame or art project you plan to do.

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 for some materials, it is always best to touch and feel them 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. At times, after paying for the items, they either arrive as wrong items or sizes, or they simply never arrive.
