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..

CHRISTMAS CHARMS

Every year,as Christmas is coming near,we try to think of something new and nice to present to our customers…something carrying symbolisms and be there for the whole year…So for this Christmas we prepared a series of fiber sculping charms in white,gold,silver,blue,red and green,the dominant colours of Christmas.

Each charm was embellished with a metallic or clay ornament.A house for domestic peace and happiness,an evil eye to keep away negative energy,a boat wishing you beautiful journeys and new begginings all year round,and gold pomegranates and horseshoes for good luck.

May we all have a peaceful and happy 2020!!
