History & Tradition

The making of friendship bracelets originated in Central America. The weaving and knotting design is a form of macramé, which is a textile-making form using knotting rather than weaving or knitting. They were first seen in the US in the early 1970s.

According to tradition, the recipient of the bracelet must wear it until the cords wear out and fall off naturally to honor the hard work and love his/her friend put into making it.

    I’ve been making bracelets for as long as I can remember and I came across your site when I was looking for some more bracelet ideas.

    This is a random question but do you not get lots of blisters on your fingers from doing so many of these?

  3. Hi Alex, I’m glad you are enjoying my site ;-).

    *to answer your question…
    Fortunately, I don’t have blisters in my fingers nor have I had any. Although, I feel like I have carpal tunnel syndrome.
