Bonnie Braid Colors Coming Soon

NEW: Azales, Smoke & Prussian Blue, coming Spring 2016!

The Bonnie Braid line is expanding. Arriving soon, we'll be offering three gorgeous colors at the Macrame Super Store:

NEW! Bonnie Braid Color: Azalea Pink
Azalea Pink Bonnie Braid.

As a much needed addition to the Red-line, Azalea is that perfect medium shade of pink which will mate well with the softness of pink-pink, and the full range of neutrals already in store. Find it here in 4mm and 6mm thickness Bonnie Braid.


NEW! Bonnie Braid Color: Smoke Gray
Smoke Gray Bonnie Braid.

Middle Gray is the most popularly requested color. Sealing the gap between Shadow and Black, Smoke should quench that much needed "perfect gray" we've all been looking for. Find it here in 4mm and 6mm Bonnie Braid.


NEW! Bonnie Braid Color: Prussian Blue
Prussian Blue Bonnie Braid.

Rounding out the new color pallet, meet Prussian Blue: a classy color, ideal for home and interior decorating. Perfect for nautically themed decorating. Find it here in 4mm and 6mm Bonnie Braid.

Tom Murray, VP Sales w/ Cookie Monster Coil Basket.

And "C is for cookie!" naturally ;-)

Let's start off with a ginormous HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOM MURRAY! As seen here posing with a familiar face and his infamous blue suite, Tom is delighted with this Easter Basket.

Easy as cake (or cookie!) we coiled this basket using 1/2 inch Coiling Cord and Royal Blue Jumbo Roving Yarn (shown below). Embellishments (ie. eyes and cookie) are made from craft foam and glue. That's it! The Cookie Monster basket is 4-year-old approved (except maybe make additional "cookies" per suggestion from a professional toddler)!

Basketry paper coiling cord - 1/4", 1/2" & 3/4" thicknesses

If you're taking a shot at basketry let us know what you're making. Want us to show off your awesome coiled basket? Send us picture, we'd love to see it-and show it off for you here! (Email: infoATpepperellDOTcom)

Counterfeit EZ Jigs

Buy genuine USA Made! EZ Jig - the original bracelet making tool!

It has been brought to our attention that a company in China has begun offering a counterfeit version of our famous EZ-Jig Parachute Cord bracelet maker. While it is true that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, in this case it is imitation in form only.

Imitation EZ Jigs made with Scrap Pine & only come with 12mm buckles
Imitation EZ-Jig. Made in China.
This Chinese “DIY Paracord Bracelet” is made from the cheapest materials possible. Glued up scrap pine nailed together, it certainly will not stand hard use. Additionally, the nails could pull loose causing a hazard for young paracordists. It was shipped with only 12mm buckles attached.

Imitation EZ Jig held together with nails. Made in China.

Pepperell Braiding Company’s genuine EZ-Jig is made fromAmerican Rock Maple sourced from locally renewable forests. Manufactured in Bradford, PA, our EZ-Jig has proven to be the best.

We are the only manufacturer of Parachute Cord that offers a complete line of tools and accessories. Insist on Pepperell Braiding Company cord, tools and accessories and keep America Working!
