What you might not know is that recently Corfu Island has had some locally inspired, designed or produced products that have been met with huge international success.
We believe they are well worth sharing, but most importantly you can order them on-line which means bringing a bit of Corfu filled air to your loved ones for Christmas too.
ANCIENT GREEK SANDALLS
Ancient Greek Sandals are handmade locally by skilled craftsmen using traditional
techniques that have existed for centuries. Anne Hathaway wears IKARIA in platinum!
KALISTON SILK ART
Can high technology reproduce an original work of art on fine silk and still keep the latter`s authentic value? The original and unique creations of Kaliston Art answer that this is possible.
Handmade leather bound armbands, earrings and necklaces made exclusively by bookbinding tools. Different shapes and sizes of leather are decorated with a special foil, as in old books, which is braided to give a very distinctive texture. One item won’t be enough.
This local artist’s source of inspiration has been the sea which is reflected in his own inimitable style. Nikos is now highly regarded by a wide international clientele and continues to produce innovative art, sculpture and jewellery from his Corfu-based workshop.
Salty Bag makes hand-crafted travel goods by upcycling decommissioned sails into elegantly designed, reusable fashion accessories. Each elegantly designed bag has a story to tell and every effort is made to source all materials locally. You’ll definitely want one yourself!
“The Governor” is one of the fewest olive oils in the world that has been awarded a “health claim” report by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Produced locally by the Dafnis family this fine bottled olive oil from Corfu has reached the shelves of Harrods in London.
Last but not least could be the most exciting Christmas gift one can give: a summer holiday in the sun! Book your holiday at Delfinia Hotels for Christmas and your loved ones will have an entire winter to enjoy the prospect of a beach holiday in Corfu.
