Dreadlocks Artesanal

Who are we?

Since 2008 we have covered several hundred heads with dreads, a symbol of the relationship with nature and of an open-minded lifestyle. It is our pleasure to emphasis the individual human beauty even more.

We exclusively work with love and the crochet hook. We work efficiently and have high quality expectations; just Swiss made. 🙂

“I am part of the team since 2019. I have dreads myself already since 2014. I have made in the past years dreadlocks for friends and other people. Making dreadlocks is fun. Aside from being a dreadlocker, I study design and therefore I have an eye for esthetics. I like to work precisely.”

“Since December 2013 I’ve been officially on the team. But I’ve been creating dreadocks for friends and acquaintances since the beginning of my dread-journey. I made my own dreads when I was 15 and as I know how difficult it can be, especially in the beginning, I love to share my yearlong experience with you. As a graphic designer I have an eye for beauty and appreciate accuracy. I am an expert for hairstyles and love to create unique dread jewelry items.”

You are more than welcome to checkout my jewelry in my  Etsy Shop. I also create unique items upon request.

“I’ve been collecting experience in the field of dreadlock creation for a couple of years now. I still enjoy it a lot to get to know all these different people and their stories. For me my dreadlocks are a way to express otherness, a version of rebellion…”
