Knot Far From Hair
Imp And Petal
Website: You're already here!
I've been involved in the alternative hair community for over a decade,
and experimenting with the art of it personally for almost as long. I have been designing
both synthetic and wool dreads under the Imp And Petal brand since 2009,
and slowly adding more skills along the way. I love this job, I love this community,
and I am so, so proud to be involved in this event.
"I'm an arty farty dreadlocked Mumma! Best known for creating jewellery and
hair accesories from buttons. I also make dream catcher
dread beads but like to dip my fingers in many crafty pies xXx"
The Finch Nest
"I have been flapping about since 2002. Based in London.
I make wigs, twisted dreads, palmrolled dreads and crochet dreads."
Teacups and Tentacles
"I started making dreads 4 years ago when I bought my first set- it was awful!
I decided I didn't want other people to have the same first experience
I did and so learnt to make them myself. I love what I do and making
beautiful things for other people is all I could ask for. ^-^"
The Foxes Treasure Dreads
"My name is Rio.
I started practicing dreads a few years ago and opened the foxes treasure in 2014.
Named after my first ginger locks that resembled a foxes tail.
I specialize in Crochet and love making naturals and blends!"
"I'm from Minnesota, specializing in hats, hoodies, and small cosplay apparel.
I study Apparel Design at the University of Minnesota and
have an extra appreciation for dark styles and Japanese fashion."
Wild Child Dreads
"I'm one of the few german dreadmakers, based in Leipzig.
The synthetic dread community is really small in Germany,
so my job is to make the option of synthetic dreads more popular here,
not just in the goth subculture I do mostly crochet dreads,
which I spice up with braids and wraps!"
"US based wool dreadmaker specializing in smooth or textured
dreads that are hand dyed to create works of art for your hair."
"Newly relocated to Denver, CO, I fashion custom, high-quality fantasy jewelry
and accessories, specializing in wire-wrapped elf ear cuffs, but over time
I have ventured into the realms of necklaces, bracelets, claw rings, masks, and more.
With my art, I hope to bring some of the "other" and fantastical into people's lives,
allowing them to more freely and easily express their own inner magical selves."
"I've been making dreads in London in the UK on and off since 2000,
solely because I enjoy making pretty things. :) "
