Urbanknit is my on-going love affair with colours and patterns. I love to make stuff! I love bright and bold colours and shapes that are also simple and functional. My main focus is on creating handmade accessories for those with a taste for something different.

Each hand-made piece is created to give the wearer the satisfaction of uniqueness and also to provide everyday accessories to complement various styles and reinforce the spirit of individuality.

I enjoy what I do and hope you do, too.
-Dolapo James

Artist's Statement:   Urbanknit is a design collective started by me,  Dolapo James, with the aim of providing fresh and interesting handmade fashion accessories; bags and scarves, that are unique and offer the wearer a sense of individuality.

From handbags and purses in bright African prints and batiks, to handknitted, there is something for everyone who'd like something a little bit different.

New designs, shapes and styles are added regularly and I am constantly exploring and experimenting with new ideas.

Each piece is carefully and lovingly put together by hand and one of my most important goals is ensuring that no two items are the same.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
