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.

PATANIA

Our SS22 collection draws inspiration from the Cretan patania. Patania was a thick rug, an essential item for every household,made of wool, woven an hand looms in bright colours and intricate patterns, carrying symbolisms and scenes of every day life and rituals. Silky textures, natural cottons and linens and a palette of fine ivory, classic black, burnt orange , marine blue and stripes add to a dynamic collection which exudes timeless sophistication. The artisanal character of the collection is underlined by details, embroideries and fabrics 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 on the Cretan Patania, a thick woven textile found in all cretan houses in the past.The patterns and imagery of the patania are translated into a fresh narrative which breathes new life into old motifs such as pots of flowers, cypresses, women dancing in a fair and  wine leaves.
