In October 2018 Ms Stella Lizardi, curator in Benaki Museum,one of the most important museums in our country suggested that we could collaborate and prepare a collection of loom woven accessories to be hosted in Benaki Museum Pavillion that would open in Spring 2019 in ‘Four Seasons” Athens.The first museum shop in the world operating within a hotel.
Needless to describe our joy and pride…We spent hours and days and months working on this project,changing details,improving designs,experimenting on colour but I trully believe every minute of it was really worth it!!
The shop offers a unique shopping experience where art objects,specially designed exclusive series and museum replicas make up a unique mix around the history of Greece, design,jewelry,fashion
‘SUTOR’ used to be the studio of a shoemaker in the heart of the Old Town of Rethymno in Crete.It was abandoned and almost ruined.The new owners did an amazing job.They renovated the old studio transforming it into a small boutique hotel, with a small garden and swimming pool. They totally respected the traditional characteristics of the building,the Venetian arches, the stone walls but also added a fresh and modern attitude to the renovation that would ensure the guests’ pleasant stay.We were extremely happy and honoured to be part of the renovating procedure by weaving in our looms all the bed throws, cushions and rugs to dress the bedrooms. No two bedrooms are the same so we had to be especially creative and design different patterns with different colours but always following the same aesthetic approach.
