What is Penoora's?
Turkish traditional handicrafts are of great importance in both socio-economic and cultural terms. Penoora's goal is to identify and promote talented women with high potential, who for certain reasons aren't able to participate in the workforce. We are no charity, however; Our focus is on building self-confidence in women through productivity, creativity and good work ethics.
Girl power all the way!
Penoora's is where Danish design meets Turkish craftsmanship. Our clothes are made from natural fabrics in simple, timeless and comfortable design that can be worn over and over again. Match one of our linen tunics with a pair of fresh colored stockings and you are good to go anywhere!
“Seeing my name on a cardigan makes me feel so proud of what
I have created. Imagining a precious little soul somewhere in the world wearing my work is simply wonderful”
“Knitting is the only time I have to myself. That’s when I have
time to meditate and not worry about a thing in the world”
“Knitting empowers me. It makes me feel like I'm making a difference for myself.”
Working for an honest, straightforward and outspoken company like Penoora's means the world to me. Here, I know my work is being valued for its true worth.
I truly enjoy being connected to people through my work, especially children. The recognition I get for my knits from all corners of the world make me feel so proud and empowered.

Are we really equal? Or put more eloquently, don't we all have unique qualities that make us all different and distinctively individual? Would asking for help make us weak? Is standing on your own two feet mandatory qualities? When I observe my fellow females out there, I cannot help but think that the over-hyped portrayal of running solo is tiring us all out. Contrary to the idea that "there is strength in numbers", it seems as if we have built towers by and for ourselves where entry is denied for even our closest ones.
