Where To Get Cotton Cord Ropes in Malaysia
Some people may already know where they can source for cotton cord ropes in Malaysia, but there are still many who are looking for them, and in affordable prices.
If you go back twenty or thirty years ago, these cotton cords would be easy to get from your local sewing shops, but over the last two decades, macrame making trends have died off until recently in 2017 or 2018.
But since that time, many retailers have stopped carrying stock for the cotton cords, and eventually factories in Malaysia stopped producing them.
Since the macrame trend in Malaysia started again back in 2017 or 2018, there are many who got back into this trend, namely the younger generation.
Tutorials were available online, namely on YouTube, and suddenly, many started teaching macrame classes in Malaysia with small group classes around the Klang Valley.
Most of the cotton cords used are the standard 5mm twisted cords, where classes were mainly teaching macrame wall hanging decorations or simple bags.
If you have been to one of these macrame classes, you would then be looking for where to buy macrame cotton cords in Malaysia, and you will know they are not easy to find.

If you are new to macrame making, we would like to point out that we do not conduct any macrame classes, but we have the knowledge as we have been making them for many years too.
You can walk in to our shop and if you need some help, we can assist you with what we know of macrame making. This includes using which type or size of cord is needed for your project.
But being Asian, you need to be open and share what you want to do. At many time, there are people who just walk in and say “I’m doing something with macrame” and are afraid to share the information.
This will make it hard for us to understand what you want to do. It is also best to get a screenshot of the project you want to do and show us. Then it will be easy for us to assist you to our best.
