The Essence of Quality Knitwear with Aklanda Australia

Since its inception in 1988, Aklanda Australia has crafted garments that intertwine timeless elegance with contemporary style. Founded by Mr. Spiro Bafas, a visionary with a passion for creating enduring pieces, Aklanda swiftly ascended to become one of Australia's foremost names in woollen jumpers.

Mr Bafas's journey began with a single knitting machine in a modest workshop and grew quickly due to a commitment to unparalleled quality and the craft. As demand surged, so did Aklanda's production capacity, with Mr. Bafas eventually establishing a dedicated manufacturing plant in Coburg, Victoria.

The hallmark of Aklanda's success 

One of the many reasons we have added Aklanda to the product line at Danny's Knitwear is the unwavering dedication to quality. Each garment is beautifully crafted in Melbourne, Australia, utilising premium 100% Australian merino wool. 

This wool, bred specifically for fine clothing, ensures luxurious comfort and durability, meeting the highest standards of excellence. Aklanda's commitment to sustainability also shines through its use of machine-washable wool, which offers convenience without compromising on quality.

Over the years, Aklanda has evolved 

The fashion landscape is continually changing, and Aklanda has always been one to ride the wave by seamlessly blending classic designs with contemporary trends. From the iconic department store windows of the mid-'90s to the dynamic realm of e-commerce and social media today, Aklanda has remained a beacon of style and sophistication.

As Mr Bafas passes the torch to his sons, the legacy of Aklanda continues to thrive. Under the stewardship of the Bafas brothers, Aklanda embraces the modern era of trade, expanding its reach to national and international markets. Through social media and e-commerce platforms, Aklanda's exquisite Melbourne-designed knitwear captivates audiences worldwide, perpetuating the brand's legacy of excellence.
