Traditional elegance from Crete
The minoan culture, emblematic in the Cretan island, had a strong impact on every dimension of Cretan life, the way of getting dressed as well. Light fabrics to bear the heat, intense colors for decoration and a traditional loom as a way of production.
Contrary to the modern industrialized ways of fabric production, the art of weaving uses the loom to produce unique pieces of garment, fine, durable and resistant. Nowadays, only a few spots on Western civilization use this way of production, Crete being one of them. Clotho is the best version of it…
Founded by a woman from Thessaloniki, that fell in love with the the island of Crete – and not only! – Klotho is a particular fashion brand 4-years old. During a visit in Crete she encountered the art of weaving from traditional women of the region and she immediately saw the potential for her next step in life. Her studies in Fashion Design helped, of course, in the creation of an interesting approach in the forms and layouts of the collections and the combination with this rare production of clothing created a unique and sustainable fashion brand that keeps expanding.
