Greece has always been a generous place. Culture, nature, light are some of the elements that Greece has gifted to humanity. Values like kindness, honour, charm are established in all forms of its culture, from ancient years, till tradition and modern art. Inspired by our heritage and our everyday light, we designed ‘Gracious Greece’ series. Our initiative was to create high quality useful art objects that at a first glance, they transmit simplicity and values, from this little place of earth.
