Weaving Dreams

Chrysaphia Sini, a retired weaver, speaks of how amazing the minds of the women who were to create these weavings in the past. They didn’t have the same information and access as the women do today. Weavers of the past had incredible patience and imagination in order to create the designs they did. Nikos Zacharakis, MA in Folk Culture, University of Ioannina, discussed the transformative impact of weaving on women in the village. Through weaving, these women found an avenue to break free from the confines of their homes and to craft something of value that helped support their families.
