Embroideries, lace and needlework – Harokopio Foundation

Harokopio Foundation in Argostoli is a non-profit organisation whose aims are the preservation of embroidery, lace and needlework traditions in Kefalonia. It was founded over 100 years ago by the Kefalonian Mr. Harokopou with the aim to teach the techniques of traditional Greek embroidery to unemployed women and girls, so as to provide them with an income and a good existence. Nowadays the Harokopio Foundation is a workshop in which associated ladies who specialise in embroidery, lace and needlework work, participate as hobbyists. Some of the embroideries are exact copies of 200 years old embroideries which are exhibited in the Corgialenios Folklore Museum in Argostoli. The Harokopio Foundation accepts orders upon request and you should know that every piece is handmade with unique skilfulness.
