CO-MATI: A Piece of Greece
CO-MATI – A Piece of Greece produce handmade souvenirs seeking inspiration in the Greek culture and Greek symbols. Dimitra Golfomitsou and Marga Michalopoulou –co-founders of COMATI- add value to an ephemeral object and create distinctive cushions, bags, deco items and placemats that stand against the anonymity of the mass souvenirs’ production. Dimitra drew on her experience as an industrial designer has come up with original patterns that are hand silkscreen printed on cotton canvases and velvet fabrics. Marga is experimenting with cotton ropes, yarns, threads and bespoke ceramic beads and creates unique bags handles, tassels and decorations for the cushions. Their aim is to give the crafter’s touch to each and every piece of their collection. Looking back to the Greek heritage they try to bring it smoothly into present aesthetic demands.
