Overview
More
It is a family-based olive wood handicraft business making products of household, decorative and personal use, everything handmade. From April 2015, after 25 years of wholesale, there is a showroom with a vast variety of handmade olivewood items (and some complementary having to do with olive oil). The prices are much lower since you will be at the production source. It is unique in Lesbos and one of the few all over the world with exclusively olive wood products.You can also enjoy, join the whole production procedure down at the workshop or even propose your own ideas of new products. We are waiting for you, for an exciting experience. Working hours, daily service 10:00 am - 21:00 pm

I visited several times and usually left with many more purchases than intended and several gifts from the generous proprietors as well. I kept missing the opening hours of the workshop itself as I was not able to come during the workday.
