Hand-woven carpets and creations Everywhere in Crete, women would weave their fabrics
on their handloom while men were at the spinning wheel and the bench, creating unprecedented works of art. The art of weaving is a field of artisanal art where Crete has had a long tradition, but also a remarkable production to date.The art of weaving is inseparably interwoven with the history and tradition of Crete, with techniques that have been preserved and have remained unchanged since Minoan times.Cretan woven textiles set themselves
apart by their rich and vivid colors and geometric animal and plant figures, representations of the daily life, as well as patterns borrowed from the island’s Minoan and Byzantine traditions. Every hand-woven textile is a unique piece of art!
