 In Yak

If you’re familiar with ASALI you’ll know we do bags and we do them well!

We’re delighted with our latest arrival, a bespoke commission for Welsh Rugby legend Ian Gough!

Alongside his memories of competing at the highest level Ian can now be found behind the mic or camera offering his wisdom to sports fans as a pundit for the game, he helped us with a blog about success,  has recently had a second child and in his spare time flies his YAK-52, that’s where we come in!

We joined Ian and Carol Vorderman on BBC Radio Wales last year as we all congregated in Swansea for the annual airshow. Somewhere between last year’s airshow and this years pandemic we managed to speak and create the bag Ian had hoped for.
