History of loom

In 1910, in the southeast of Kythira, a driftwood was washed up on the beach. An old man found it, loaded it on his donkey and then a carpenter of that time, turned it into a  fantastic loom. Every lass of that time had a loom and used it to weave all sorts of items, from underwear to carpets.

This loom has never stopped working and, with minimum maintenance, it has been kept like new and it has been passed down from generation to generation. We weave patchwork kilim rugs, tapestries, bags and purses with love and attention to detail. We use a modern approach to connect the past with the present.
