Designed by Giedre Dukauskaite & Vaida Stankute.
Since debuting at New York Fashion week in 2006, Lithuanian model Giedre Dukauskaite has become the industry’s darling appearing on the covers of magazines including Vogue, ELLE, Harpers Bazaar and Glamour. She quickly became the icon of off-runway style.
For this collaboration Giedre teamed up with her best friend Vaida Stankute, a fellow-model-turned-clinical-psychologist, to design their perfect off-runway knit set that empowered other women.
With every purchase of Slabada knit, your orders will fund either an hour-long psychologist consultation for a woman looking to leave an abusive relationship or a domestic violence survivor's stay at a safehouse. All donations will be made to Vilnius Women's House Crisis Center, a non-profit providing specialized complex help for women experiencing violence in Lithuania.
Named Slabada after Giedre’s hometown in rural Lithuania, the knit set was inspired by Lithuania’s nature and landscape.
Each item is knitted by hand by The Knotty Ones' kick-ass knitters in Lithuania. This means that every item you purchase is one-of-a-kind and slight variations are inherent.

10€ Towards Your Knitter's Dream. What's that?
The Knotty Ones was started with the dream to provide stable jobs, fair wages and financial independence to women, mostly stay-at-home moms in rural areas of Lithuania, who otherwise would not have these opportunities in life.
The brand makes sure that their knitters earn enough to provide themselves and their families with the basics of a decent life — be it a warm meal on their dinner table, school supplies for their kids, medical care, clothing, paying electricity bills or housing. While they wish they could increase knitters' salaries beyond just a fair wage, the reality of operating a small independent label with design, marketing and premium material costs does not necessarily allow to do so.
The Knotty Ones wanted to create a platform that gave knitters a realistic shot at achieving their bigger, wilder dreams.
Now with each purchase, you can choose to donate €10 directly towards a dream of a woman who made your knit. If you wish to do so, you can choose to add a €10 donation to your purchase. It will go directly towards making these dreams come true. If you rather not, that's totally cool too. We are super grateful for helping create stable jobs and incomes for women.
