Weaving-Embroidery Greece

Remote village full of traditions, a mix of ethnicities from Anatolia and the islands – these are the ingredients for age-old garments, rugs and products that have been stitched, weaved or embroidered by generations. Lefkada is known for its lace, Arachova for its rugs and Kalamata for its silk, while towns and villages the country over have their own stitched products to be proud of. This is a dying art that a few women have kept in place, thanks to the strong sense of heritage and tradition in the country. As you travel through, make it a point to discover the delights and soulful creations of each region. You'll be surprised how the handiwork will touch your soul.
