“The art of weaving is related to everyday life and their life stories. So, by unraveling the details of their history, they unraveled the weft and warp of their lives,” said Nikos Zacharakis, MA in Folk Culture, University of Ioannina. Beyond its cultural significance, weaving plays a crucial role in the village’s economy, serving as a source of income for its residents. In this video you will be introduced to Geraki weavers and how they came to embrace the practice of weaving.
