SPRING – SUMMER 2020

The brand

KLOTHO is a sustainable fashion brand founded in Crete in 2016 that brings together the Art of Weaving with contemporary design and global trends to create items of timeless aesthetics.
Artisanal garments of relaxed chic elegance made of lasting quality materials and handloom embroidered patterns.

WEAVING A LIFE OF ABUNDANCE

Our SS21 collection draws inspiration from the rich Cretan embroidery tradition of the 16th -19th century. A fusion of figures,such as the snake, the goat, carnations, round flowers, mermaids and peacocks, all carrying symbolisms, delivering good health, well-being, abundance, prosperity, happiness. Silky textures, natural cottons and a palette of fine ivory, classic black, bright gold and vivid green add to a dynamic collection which exudes timeless sophistication.

The artisanal character of the collection is underlined by details and fabrics hand woven in Crete by our local expert weavers.

OUR PRINT – THE STORY BEHIND

Our print for this summer is a display of folk culture symbols as they appear in Cretan embroideries translated into a fresh narrative each carrying a meaning. The peacock for good luck, the snake for power and regeneration, the flowers for beauty and happiness, the goat for pride and leadership. Hand illustrated exclusively for KLOTHO , by artist and illustrator Zeta Papadopoulou.
