In Greek mythology the Trojan Horse was a construction inspired by Odysseus. It was a horse which served as a hiding-place, with the view to deceiving the Trojans who regarded it as a present from the ancient Greeks. In reality, it was a construction bearing the most prominent Greek heroes. With the advent of the horse in Troy, the Greeks came out and opened the gates to the remaining warriors, thus triggering the capture of the city.
Over the years the Trojan horse has become a symbol of the Greek ingenuity, wittiness, decisiveness and, in general, the ability to confront difficulties.
After fruitful thought, the creator has come up with the most lasting and romantic of all her products which could be nothing but silk. Silk comes exclusively from Soufli, and gently wraps the body, the senses and the soul. At the same time, its slogan is associated with the history of the Trojan horse, highlighting the resourcefulness of the Greeks and their skill in fighting at difficult moments. All these elements unite and interweave in a scarf which reminds us of Greece even with its colour – created by Eirini Papagiannopoulou from Aigio through her love for Greece.
Eireen Greek Silk Scarves are manufactured in Soufli, a town with great tradition on silk production as it was a part of the silk road during the Byzantine era.
The Trojan Horse collection had been successfully sold in the shop of the British Museum, in the exhibition ‘Defining Beauty : the Body in ancient Greek art‘.
