About Us

About unique!

unique! is a family-owned business based in Dubai that was started to share the beauty of hand-crafted clothes. All of our pieces are handmade with love and precision, and use only high quality fibers and yarns. No piece of clothing is exactly like the other; each one is completely unique.

 

A word from our founder, and the creator of all unique! pieces; Coni Volkmann! 

My passion for making my own clothes first started around 15 years ago, when I was pregnant with my second child. I was looking for clothes that used real materials, and was frustrated that almost everything on the market used yarns that had acrylics in them. Instead of settling, I took time during my pregnancy to learn how to make the clothes I wanted myself, and have been doing so ever since. 

Knitting and crocheting became an outlet; it allows me to be creative while relaxing me at the same time. It has kept me sane. 

Nowadays, my inspiration for the pieces I make comes from everywhere; magazines, television, photos, and even the clothes I see people wear in person. I take inspiration from everything and everyone around me, and put my own spin on the things I see to create truly unique! pieces. 

I decided to start this business because being creative in this way has become an addiction, and I could not possibly wear all the clothes I create. I want to continue making clothes, and share these with as many people as possible. The main goal of unique! is to spread to joy of handmade clothes.
