KLOTHO HOME

Having your own studio with 4 floor looms and 4 table looms is a blessing but more often than not I have the feeling that there are so many things to do on my looms that time is not enough…My mind is overwhelmed with new ideas, new patterns and techniques to be practiced ,new materials, new products that could get in production…this is how KLOTHO HOME was born. And as every newborn, KLOTHO HOME has come to fill my soul with bliss and satisfaction and this unique feeling you get when you achieve new goals, when you realise that hours of hard work, threading and unthreading and warping and weaving and unweaving have not been wasted.When you have come to a point to reach a new mountaintop and “enjoy the view”.

KLOTHO HOME is taking its first steps. Right now it consists of a small collection of placemats,rugs,wall hangings , plexiglass deco items and cushion covers.

This is just the beggining…we are here to make more and more beautiful things to share with our customers and friends!!Comissions are also welcome. So stay tuned for more…

TAPESTRY WEAVING WORKSHOPS

It was such a pleasure for me to get an absolutely positive feedback on the announcement of offering weaving workshops for begginers in Rethymno and Chania.Groups of 4 were soon complete and happy,emerging weavers filled our studio with their creative mood and positive energy.

Having people accepting and supporting what you do is a blessing indeed. I try really hard to persuade people that weaving is not a craft of the past, an art that passed away, as most people in my country think, but a craft that evolves, an Art with incredible potential and numerous applications.In Greece weaving has been a neglected Art for over two generations…But things are getting better and better every day as people and especially younger people are getting in touch with this magical craft.There are many ambitious artists and entrepreneurs nowadays promoting and breathing new air into weaving and this is really encouraging for the future of weaving.

Special thanks to Eleni Teneketzi,owner of Koukoubook bookstore in Chania.She offered her beautiful space in the centre of the town for our workshops.Such a sweet, kind and talented girl in the town’s most updated bookshop!!

KLOTHO featured in SAT1, German TV documentary about Crete – Grenzelos

A group of three journalists from SAT 1 , visited our island to write a documentary about Crete,trying to discover all the hidden treasures of the island.

Our loom studio and the revival of an ancient technique by our brand was something they admired and assessed highly so we were asked to participate in the movie.

How could we resist? It was a great honour and a unique experience at the same time..
