ORIGIN: Tehran, Afghanistan
PLACE OF RESIDENCE: Vienna, Austria
Hi, I'm Ajmal and my name means beautiful. I come from Afghanistan, where I grew up in Tehran with my five sisters until I came to Vienna in 2012 as a teenager. My family still lives in Afghanistan.
I am sewing REFISHED's flag collection at the "Schnittbogen" in Vienna, working mainly with the sewing machine. What I like most about my job is the opportunity to be creative.
In my free time I like to watch science fiction films. Now and then I like to drink a glass of red wine.
My dream would be to be able to fly and that would make me very happy. One of the most important things for me is truth - I don't like bad people, but I appreciate good people even more.
On a deserted island I would take a knife, a rope and my backpack.
My favourite REFISHED product is the Sporty Bag made from upcycled museum flag fabric.
