About Black Sunshine

Back in 2004 I started Black Sunshine as a retail business selling alternative clothing.
I also started experimenting with making synthetic dreads and have never stopped.

Since 2011 Black Sunshine has become a solely 'handmade' business, after closing down my bricks and mortar store.
I now sell only my handmade synthetic dreads and accessories via Etsy.

My favourite thing to do is make dreads. Especially the more natural looking crochet dreads. I love mixing colours to come up with great unique combinations.
