Crafter is a Manchester-
handmade crafts, dreadlock accessories, jewellery, home décor and
Elena originally started the business in Cyprus in 2008. It stemmed
from her love of making, which led her to have stalls around the island
selling her handmade creations.
In 2009, Elena moved to Manchester where she continued her studies
in Interior Design and added new skills to her repertoire such as
dreadlock making. Since then she has been dedicated to the dreadlock
culture of the city, through dread creation and maintenance, inputting
extensions, making hair wraps and selling dreadlock accessories.
In 2016, she visited Thailand for the first time where she sought out fair
trade and ethical craft making businesses and brought their work to the UK.
Since then she has kept on travelling to more places like India and
Morocco and Turkey on the same mission. All the crafts can now be
found on her online shop or at Crafter’s studio in Stockport.
Her unique creativity and skills have also led her to large scale projects
such as designing stages, lycra canopies, free standing art installations,
and setting up and decorating festivals, like Insight Film Festival in 2011
and 2013. This has in turn brought some great collaborations; she has
been coordinating the decor for Manchester events legends Illuminaughty
since 2013 till 2018, and working alongside events production company
Visual Architects designing a series of different events and festivals
around the world, some of which include Sunrise Festival, Boomtown Fair,
Exit Festival, Kendal Calling and loads more.
Crafter’s pledge is to stay unique and true to the world of Dreadlocks,
Crafting, Handmade and will stay on the mission to make the world pretty!!
