No. Generally speaking, Greek clothes are absolute garbage. The best clothes in Greece are worse than the clothes you can buy at target or Walmart. Many companies in Greece will put "made in Greece" but the product is actually made in China.

Save your money and don't buy any clothes or linens from Greece.

If you must, check out: Tsakiris Mallas, Bsb, Toi&Moi... I'm not 100% certain if Toi&Moi is Greek

Greece used to have really great shoes, Tsakiris Mallas is pretty popular and makes decent women's shoes but they aren't what they used to be

Well, it depends on your budget as many Greek fashion brands have gone international and are on the expensive side:

Check our Parthenis, Ioanna Kourbella, Ancient Kallos, Ancient Greek Sandals, Zeus + Dione, Callista Crafts to name a few .
If you search for Greek designers, you will be amazed by the innovation and quality.

There are also really great Greek visual artists and jewelers. I don’t know any by name but every time I go to Greece I am stunned by the craftsmanship in the small galleries. If you’re in Athens or islands you will find beautiful handmade things

Interesting. I have been reading that there are some up and coming Greek fashion designers that are gaining recognition. I read it in Vogue:


There's a Greek designer named Di Petsa who grew up in Athens and is gaining worldwide recognition. Check out her stuff:


She has a genius way of wrapping the body with her clothes. And her stuff is pretty affordable.

What type of wedding reception is common in Greece?

I am just curious - what types of wedding receptions are common in Greece? For the most part, it looks like the celebrations often take place outside, and there are usually a lot of people there. As I am not Greek and don't have family in Greece, my reception would be pretty small. I don't know what to do!

Greek Ships Christmas Tradition?

I have heard of the tradition of decorating boats in Greece for Christmas. I think it's called karakavi? Does anyone know anything more about it? This isn't a tradition my family adopted but I have heard of friends doing it. I am thinking of adding it to our holiday celebrations this year.

From what I can tell, people who don't have an actual boat decorate models of boats. At first, I thought based on pics I had seen of Greece in the past, that boat owners were just being festive. lol

How Do Greeks Celebrate Ohi Day?

I looked up Ohi Day resentful because I learned it was occurring soon. I find the history so interesting! I know that Greeks have the day off. I am wondering how Greeks typically celebrate it? The events surrounding the day seemed to represent Greece's ability to stand up for what was right and to resist the Axis forces. It was the right thing to do to not let the Axis enter Greece easily so that they can have a strategic place for their troops.

To celebrate this important part of history today, though, what do the Greeks do today?

Ohi Day is Coming Up - How Do People Celebrate?

I am trying to learn about the Greek culture. Many of you may have seen my posts lately about phyllo...I realize that I want to know more than just the food! I looked on the calendar and it seems that Ohi Day is coming up - how do people usually celebrate? From what I gather, people in Greece who are in the workface get this day off? Besides that, how do people spend the day?

Do Greeks Celebrate Halloween?

I know that Halloween isn't something that is traditionally Greek, and that is true in other places in Europe, too. However, I have noticed in my travels that some countries have been embracing it. Is this the case in Greece or do Greeks mostly ignore it?
