CHELACHE is a small knitwear label based in Hackney, London.
We design, make and sell knitted fashion accessories for men and women. Everything is done in house, from design and sampling to production and finishing. At the moment we mainly retail our products direct to the public, via our website and at design markets and sales shows, but we are looking to develop the wholesale side of the business.
Production of knitted accessories on Dubied flat bed knitting machines.
Assisting at design shows and sales shows (both retail and trade).
Skills & Experience
Interns will be expected to assist in potentially all areas of the business and so learning opportunities will be broad and varied. I’m always eager to share knowledge and can help interns to not only develop their technical skills but also their understanding of other areas of the business if they show an interest (sales, marketing, design, pricing etc.).
Who would benefit?
A knitted textile student or graduate with an understanding of how knitting machines work would be ideal. Experience with Dubied industrial knitting machines in particular is a definite bonus. An interest in or knowledge of fashion is not necessary, but a passion for knitting is.
Interns should be willing to perform a broad and varied ranges of tasks.
More important than the technical knowledge and skills they already possess is the eagerness to learn and expand on those skills during their time here.
There is the possibility down the line to increase hours and or take a formal job role if mutually agreeable.
£7.00 per hour
