Karpathos Weaving in Karpathos

The weaving craft of Olympos showcases many great examples of artistic sensitivity, like household articles such as sheets, small carpets called “hremia”, various textiles and other traditional household articles such as the “giples” and the “stiliomantiles” and items for agricultural and pastoral use such as satchels of various sizes and cloaks. Many women of the village still weave to this day.
