Ebroidery can be traced as far back as 5th - 3rd century B.C. and has lived on generation after generation with minimal changes to technique or materials used. Colorful threads became a form of decorative communication for our gradnmothers and great - grandmothers who used to convene daily with neighbors and friends in their homes’ countryards to embroider and talk, instinctively creating a therapeutic communal gathering.
Inspired by Greek folklore designs, we apply the same traditional hand - stiching techniques our gradnmothers and great - grandmothers used years ago, modernizing them by combining delicate needlework with highest quality cotton thread and lustous recycled metals.
Earth-friendly sources, community service, and environmental rehabilitation.
