Culture of Handcraft


        Culture of Handcraft 

 Herbs. 

We choose abundant populations of our herbs, situated in remote areas with a minimum chance of pollution, and all harvesting is done by hand.

We try to do our best to work and live with a holistic approach, a living, dynamic and all-embracing approach both to human- but also to plant nature.

Then there is something special about essential, etherical oils, which somehow relates to the spirit, the spiritual energy as well. Spiritual energy is strongest in free and healthy plants, which are allowed to express their individuality just like it is in us human beings.

This is not a company as usually you can meet, but is a mixture of passion, love and much respect to the planet and all creatures live on her.

Long before, having finished studies about psychology, and learning about the emotional body of the humans, I had the strong wish to find ways for healing without using chemicals.  Through different alternative methods, like the colours, painting, music, psychodrama, went little by little to the roots, what people used to use in old time. And after to older time arriving to Hyppocrates, Aesculapius, Dioscurides and examining the similarities between different countries and civilisations about the use of herbal remedies, the conclusion was, that nature offers on every place what is necessary to heal different situations and diseases.

Verekinthos is the mountain where, according to mythology Idaioi Daktiloi – sons of Zeus and protectors of the Arts, once lived and were worshiped. They came to this mountain to teach age-old arts to men, such as Metallurgy, Pottery, Glassworks and Weaving.

Today, in the very same place we run silversmith’s and goldsmith’s as well workshops for ceramics, sculpture, glass making, hagiography, painting, leather, fabric and textile applications, wood working, decorative objects and traditional musical string instruments.

There are also workshops and classes for pottery, painting and fabric applications.
