Utterly wonderful. Thank you so much for my stunning cardigan. It will be used and used in the cold winter. It's really beautiful. I love it.

The shawl is very nice. The colors turned out a bit different than I expected (more green than turquoise/blue), but I really like it. The shawl is very light but warm - perfect for chilly evenings in the summer or for indoor wear in the colder months. The conversation with Asli was very nice. She answered my questions very promptly and the shawl was shipped quickly and arrived very fast.

About

AFRA

Afra, the white soil in the heavens that no one ever set foot..

Hi,

My name is Asli. I am 36 years old. I have been running Afra actively for five years now, and I think it is the best thing I have ever done in my life.

Before getting into the world of knitting, I did advertising for most of my working life. One day I was doing a campaign for a bank, another day preparing an ad for a chocolate brand, and another day for a textile company. I enjoyed it first, but then it started to bug me that I wasn't the one producing things, and that I was merely a person in between companies and consumers. I wanted to offer something myself. Something I would like to share with people that's coming directly from my hands. It didn't take too long for me to part ways with the advertising world, once I realized the hollowness growing inside me. Luckily I wasn't alone. My dear friend, Azra was also feeling the same, and she and I joined up together and started working on something we both loved. Thats's how AFRA got started. We wanted to explore on a new land and rediscover ourselves.

So, the thing I learned from grandma as a kid, became my job later in life, relieving me from stress, fulfilling my desire to create. I love knitting. Coming up with a new idea or a design, choosing the right yarn with right colors, combining stuff to create a whole, both beautiful and functioning product; these are my daily challenges now, and I am happy. I can't describe the feeling it gives me, knowing somewhere in the world, someone is wearing something of my creation.

On the journey we started together with Azra, I am alone now. My dear companion felt like designing clothes for heaven. I am sure angels are better looking now thanks to her. Thanks to her, Afra exists today.
