Livadia Basketry

The village of Livadia is one of the few places on the island where a traditional form of basket making and weaving are still practised. Today, there are only a handful of women skilled in the particular – and intricate – method.

Livadia village basketry has been recognised as part of the village’s unique heritage with its inclusion on the UNESCO National Intangible Cultural Heritage List, whilst the village has also opened a Basketry Museum that incorporates basketry lessons alongside its exhibits, an initiative designed to preserve and showcase Livadia’s proud folkart.
