The Cyclades name derives from a group of islands in the Aegean sea forming a circle (Cyclos) around the sacred island of Delos. Cyclades draws its inspiration from ancient art, nature and Mythology to create timeless luxury silk scarves and fashion accessories that have a mythical character. Geometrical shapes, human figures, ancient gods and elements from Greek history are transformed into wearable art pieces. This creates a blend of luxury and elegance that promotes the beauty and creativity of the Greek heritage.
The process begins with drawings, illustrations and experiments in color and composition that will lead to the finished design. Cyclades scarves are printed on high quality silk twill and are hand rolled. Every piece is produced to the highest standard, offering a luxury finish of mythical Greek design.
