Who Are We?
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.
Penoora’s combines Scandinavian simplicity with traditional craftsmanship. We use only high quality materials like linen, GOTS organic cotton, Oeko-Tex wool or mercerized cotton. We support the Fashion Revolution and value transparency and good ethics as being essential to our production principles.
“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.
