I am Alexa Sharabrina, the owner of Alexa's Hand-Knitted Goods. My mother taught me how to knit when I was a child. It has been my hobby since then. After giving my items to my friends as gifts and getting a lot of compliments, I decided to start my own business and share my passion with a larger audience.
I take inspiration for my items from Azerbaijan’s carpet weaving tradition. Having married an Azerbaijani man who never fails to affirm my respect and love, my appreciation for the culture only continues to grow and I am on a mission to spread it. The rich colors and patterns from the Azerbaijani carpets are incorporated into my items.
Not only a visual treat, the slippers I make have multiple health benefits, as they calm the nervous system and normalize blood pressure, thereby improving one’s well-being in general. To honor the wisdom of our ancestors, we use 100% wool and cotton yarn of the highest quality that is scientifically proven to keep feet dry and prevent overheating.
