DarDars creates ethical handknit clothes. We do our very best to leave a gentle 'footprint' and a love-filled legacy by creating beautiful, sustainable and eco-friendly knits for pleasure and comfort. Some cottons and bamboo, wood fibre, linen, hemp are our go-to choices dyed by hand with natural plant based dyes. Each item has an individual quality; some styles being one of a kind.
Behind the Scenes!
Amanah Elizabeth Triggs - Owner - Knitter- Designer
"Some of my greatest pleasure has been the act of knitting. Such a meditation. Knits of all sizes create themselves in my hands with inspiring colour combinations. They present themselves like loving miracles. New creations spring forth and offer more opportunities to share colour."
As a certified Colour Light Instructor I am aware of all aspects that colour embraces.
How we experience colour is so personal and it affects every cell in our body and all our senses.
Gradually I began filling my workspace with beautiful colour, and exploring ethical sources for the most natural and hand-dyed yarns possible. Slowly DarDars Hand Knits was created and my knitting focus began as I worked the vital ingredient of Love into every design and stitch.
In the Fall of 2020 my daughter, Anna Bateman, joined me as co-partner and manager. Anna happily heads up all things social media and business related.
