(Amagansett, New York, United States) – Ancient Greek Sandals, a company that sells exclusive sandals made in the Ancient Greek style, will be hosting a monogramming event at TIINA the STORE in Amagansett on Friday, July 1, 2016 and Saturday, July 2 2016. This will give customers the opportunity to individualize their sandals for the very first time after they purchase them on the store The event was coordinated by Christina Martini, the founder and creative director of Ancient Greek Sandals.
People can bring their sandals to the store in order to have them monogrammed using a stamping technique that was popular in Ancient Greece. Martina said that, “Hot stamping has always been our favorite technique with Ancient Greek Sandals, so it seemed only natural to let our customers personalize their own pair this summer using this traditional process.” The hot stamping technique is done by applying heat to make the indentation. The sandals are also handmade.
The company’s sandals are created in the traditional style using leather and techniques that were pioneered back in Ancient Greece. The Ancient Greeks most commonly wore a flip-flop style show with the strap between the first and second toes. However, they’ve also modernized a lot of their designs. Feedback from customers indicates that the sandals are exceptionally comfortable, practical, and also beautiful. People seem to love that the designs and techniques were inspired by Ancient Greece.
Nikolas Minoglou, one of the company’s founders, will be at the store on both Friday and Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM. He will be on hand to personalize the sandals for free whenever someone buys one of the company’s shoes. Personalization options include things like initials, symbols, evil eye protection symbols, charms, zodiac signs, pictograms, symbols, and more. In other words, the individual can choose whatever they want! TIINA the STORE is located in the Hamptoms on 216 Main Street in Amagansett, New York.
