Absolutely beautiful sweater. Great unique design, super soft yarn. Asli is a wonderful artist and so helpful, I immediately purchased two additional items. Thank you.

It took me ages to choose this jumper because Afra's selection is so great that I was spoiled for choice. This is my second jumper from Afra and I plan on getting one every year from now on - whether I need it or not! 😄 Amazing value for money, beautifully knitted, a great fit and attracts so many compliments, did I say I'm thrilled with my jumper?! I love that I can choose from the great selection of colours and communicate directly with Asli, who provides wonderful personal service. This jumper is such fun to wear with the front pocket, it's so warm yet lightweight and is now one of my favourites. I'm only sad that here in Australia, we're already entering a hot spring, so it'll be a while yet before I can again enjoy wearing my jumper. I'm now looking forward to next winter!

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.
