ARE LOST IN THE DEPTHS
OF HUMAN PREHISTORY.
Especially in Greece, the plethora of “stone footprints”, that were brought to light by ancient excavations attests to its dissemination since the age of the Neolithic Era. According to the myth Goddess Athena was the inventor of the loom and is considered to be the protector of the Art of Weaving. In fact, it is said that she believed to be the best weaver and she turned into a spider the daughter of a dyer from Ionia that dared to brag that her technique rivaled the technique of Athena.The mother of all arts as the German professor Gottfried Semper, a leading professor in architecture, aptly named it, has influenced over time –to the maximum extend– not only the types and the symbols, but also the colors in all the arts! The art of weaving is the cornerstone of civilization and tradition, a chain which actually links one generation to the next! In order to avoid misinterpretation lets clarify that by tradition we don’t refer to retrogression or disconnection from the progress. On the contrary, tradition evolves by experiencing the three dimensions of time (past – present – future) and is inextricably linked to the elements that survive over time. So by upholding tradition we preserve our past, and yet add what we create every single day. With the creation of fabric, humans wanted to cover their base needs in clothing.
