dread shops

these shops are still working however  this section is being retired we have opened a full shopping mall featuring free shops that are full featured customizable ecommerce shops at the brand new

our members dreadlock shops

our members hand made dread tams, accessories, beads, jewelry and clothing

due to the increasing number of members shops we have divided them into departments click the links below. as the shops increase we may split them into more categories

dread tams, hats, crowns for your dreadlocks

this week's featured shop


please note sand and sky creations has moved! Sand and sky's tams and tam patters are available here:

If you have an Etsy shop, you can generate an "Etsy Mini" advertisement and add it to this forum. In your Etsy account, go to "Your Etsy" / "Etsy Mini" and select your display options. (I recommend using Thumbnail view, 4 columns x 3 rows.) Ensure the Preview appears. Copy the entire code block for the Flash version (the last text box on the page) and paste it in a private message here to SE or knottysleeves. We'll add it to the shops page.

If your shop is somewhere other than Etsy (ArtFire, CafePress, Yahoo, etc), you can use Sellit to generate a shop preview widget. Go to and register with your shop/site information. Copy the embed code and paste it into a private message here to SE or knottysleeves, and we'll add it to the shops page.

You can also add your Etsy Mini or Sellit widget to your profile, by pasting the code into the "About Me" box.


When shopping for dreadlock products or handmade goods, please consider buying from members of the community.


If you don't have a shop, we can add you to the dread shops for the shopless home crafters section of the site too!

Hey everyone. Not sure if Soaring Eagle got his hat or not. Hope it fits.

Anyways, we've run out of most of our dreadlock hats now, but there is a few left. You can also earn a hat by reading what that's all about on the site. I've got another batch of dreadhats being handmade and on it's way and expect them to be in around early January 2011. If you visit the site and see a dreadlock hat you want and it's not there, just shoot out an email and when it comes in we'll let you know. Also, Happy New Year!

Here is the stores url

Hey hey hey folks! I just got my bead from Knottysleeves last week and it is very well made and looks awesome. It's pretty skinny so if ya have big phat dreads (majority of mine are) ya might wanna ask if she has phatter ones. But I had one just waiting for it. I got the Dead one. Awesome work!!!! Looks great! Thanks Knottysleeves!
