Designed for Island Gyals and Dancehall Queens worldwide, Knots & Vibes is a hand-made crochet label based in London, UK. Inspired by travels around the Caribbean, the brand was born from a love of dancehall music and island lifestyle.
Although Dancehall music has historically been condemned as demeaning and vulgar, labelled as 'slackness', Knots & Vibes aims to change perceptions of the genre, aligning its practices and messaging with aspects of feminism through the #FeminismInDancehall tag.
In 2018, we held 9 days of crochet workshops for teen mothers in Kingston, Jamaica through the Mustard Seed Mary's Child programme. The aim was to allow the girls to develop a skill that they could use to earn an income, enabling them to become financially independent. Since the workshops, we have continued to provide tools and materials for the girls that took part, funded by sales of our crochet chokers and donations from customers.
Whilst Knots & Vibes was born as a clothing brand, our long term vision is to continue working with women's organisations in the Caribbean in an effort to provide more opportunities for women in need.
Unfortunately as each piece is hand-made to order and delicate in nature, we are unable to accept returns. Please make sure you select the correct size/colour/style and provide us with measurements if you're unsure.
To be on the safe side, always hand-wash Knots & Vibes pieces with a mild detergent and do not soak. 100% cotton items may stretch with wear - wash in hot water and dry flat to regain shape.
