That’s not all… To make their gift all the more special ASALI offers a bespoke personalisation service on selected products.
Founded in May 2016 by Mindy Arora when she and her husband, a Typhoon Display Pilot, visited an airshow, Mindy realised a gap in the market for luxurious aviation inspired goods.
With airshows being second only to football in terms of annual crowd figures at outdoor events (TSA Consulting) Mindy set about researching the event and online market and ASALI was born. Having a background in marketing meant Mindy was in a good position to move things forward and turn her vision into reality.
All the products are designed in Lincoln but made in India in the family owned factory in Kolkata. The factory is an SA 8000 certified company ensuring all employee rights and safety are adhered to as a minimum.
ASALI products are made using a combination of both hand and machine based techniques, machines have been imported from Japan, Taiwan, China and Italy. The hand made nature and of course the leather itself means that each item is unique and variations in colour and finish are natural, without deviating from the highest quality.
ASALI offers a range of different leather types that are used across the product ranges including embossed, nappa and Italian to name just a few. 2020 will see new designs and leather being used.
Used and loved by RAF pilots and well known faces, including Phillip Schofield, the brand has grown to also offer our understated luxurious designs without aviation symbols, ASALI Designs is for the discerning aviation fan and you.
ASALI also actively gives back to charity and is proud to support the RAF Benevolent Fund and RAF Association by donating a percentage of profits of sales, and by giving products to their various charity events.
