Greek Design on the Island – Clothing

Around the Island

Eclectia in Naoussa

Today we are going shopping in Naoussa! Naoussa has a pretty interesting market and many options to offer. We are after some contemporary greek creations and that is what we find in Eclectia and Electric.

ECLECTIA, is a family business that focuses on the design and production or elegant clothes. Their creations are inspired by the greek landscape and they are made out of natural fabrics of really good quality. We met Orestis, the shop’s owner and he talked to us about their philosophy. The beautiful colors of the fabrics caught our eye and we didn’t miss the opportunity to try some of the dresses on!

After a short walk, we find ourselves in one of Naoussa’s newest additions, ELECTRIC. Once more, we are surrounded by good quality, colorful fabrics and inspiring contemporary greek design. Amongst the great variety of clothes and accessories, Electra’s own creations really stand out. As she talks to us about her work she doesn’t miss the opportunity to put on a couple of her own handmade manteaux and we don’t miss the opportunity to takes some photographs!

Hiking around the lighthouse

The monumental rock formations together with the low vegetation of wildflowers, herbs and bushes form a magical setting for an afternoon walk.

Hiking & Herbs

The mountains of Paros are full of nature’s pharmacy’s pure products.

Pruning vines

February is the month of pruning the vines, so even though the landscape seems a little bit dry, there is a lot of activity going on at Moraitico winery.

Autumn Sailing

The wind is perfect and the last bit of sunlight for the day makes the bay and Naoussa at the background look even more magical!

Sea kayaking around Antiparos

The sea was calm, so paddling was easy and relaxing, while the proximity to the surface of the sea gave us a unique perspective of the wonderfully blue waters of the Aegean.

Coffee & Snack in Naoussa

After finishing off what has to be done, it ‘s time for a coffee and a quick snack, before leaving the village.

A Relaxing Day at Glyfa

After a couple of hours under the sun and a bit of swimming, we moved to the restaurant of the area, only meters away from the beach.
