If, while strolling around the picturesque streets of Agios Leon village in Zakynthos Island, you hear the characteristic sound of a loom working, don’t be surprised; you are probably outside Anemidi shop. Anemidi is a family business, and many of its wares are handmade by Ms. Panagiota and her amazing original loom.
The loom is a unique characteristic of the shop; indeed, “Anemidi” is the name of a specific part of the traditional weaving equipment. The loom was purchased 10 years ago by Ms. Panagiota, whose first project was a pink & white carpet. Of course, as you will see, her art has improved massively!
In Anemidi you can find from handmade woven textiles to other handmade artifacts such as dreamcatchers and creations from sea-wood, as well as local products such as olive oil, wine, honey, olives, and traditional Greek desserts.
