KARIMA ONE OF A KIND

Karima pieces draw inspiration from Ancient Greece and Greek folk tradition, such as the draping of the peplos and chiton (ancient Greek garments), and the embroidered aprons and vests of folk costumes. The dresses are made using the age-old art of macramé, which is based on complex geometric knotting patterns. The Greek form of macramé, named desia, was used extensively in Crete hundreds of years ago by the women creating the bridal trousseau, using their bare hands.

Each Karima piece is created on the tailoring doll without a fixed pattern. It requires hours of meticulous hand work, more than a hundred meters of yarn, thousands of knots, focus, and dedication, requiring from one to five days to be completed.
