Welcome to QIPU Macrame
About Qipu Macrame
QIPU MACRAME is based in Queenstown New Zealand and it was founded by me, Majo, a Peruvian girl who's curiosity for travelling brought her to settle half way across the world.
Architect by trade and creative by nature, I found a form of expression in Macrame and a new passion that became a small business.
QIPU was one of the first forms of counting in the world and it was created by the Incas in South America. It consisted of different types of knots attached to a main stick of string.
Coming from Peru myself and using knots to create art, I just thought the name made sense!
