An inquiry has been passed onto me seeking the origin/identity of the two macramé hangings shown in the attached photos. There was a suggestion that they could originate from West Africa.

For me they rather ring bells of the 1970s craze for macramé - I did quite a bit myself when I was living in the Cayman Islands between 1972-74. Image No 2 has, perhaps, a rather Scandinavian feel?

If anyone can contribute any wisdom on the matter it would be gratefully received.
