Meet the Maker
Hi, my name is Dafna and I am the maker behind Knot You Knot Me. I was born in Israel and moved to Canada when I was 8 years. My earliest memories of making things, was when I was 6 years old, when my grandmother taught me how to sew on a sewing machine. We mostly made clothes for my dolls. It was then the I discovered my love of fashion, and decided that I wanted to be a fashion designer. I went to Ryerson for Fashion Design, but quickly realized it was not what I wanted to do. I went on to work in retail for almost 25 years, specializing in visual merchandising. It was a love hate relationship. I loved that I was able to be creative and put my own spin on the plans, but at the same time, it was taking me away from my young son. I decided to get a 9-5 job (retail is definately not that, it was mostly overnights). But I missed being creative.
In 2017, I stared making macrame plant hangers and wall hangings. It quickly developed into jewellery.
I love experimenting with different types of knots and rope. The same knot can look completely different depending on the type of rope you use. In 2018, I left my 9-5 job to pursue my small business full time. Everyday, I try to experiment with a different and see where it can take me, and develop new ideas.
