Heptagon collection is inspired by lucky charms of greek heritage. In ancient times, from the end of September until the beginning of October, kids would carry an olive tree branch around the streets of Athens. The branch (Iresioni) was decorated with white and red wool, walnuts, chestnuts, almonds, figs and cereals. It was an act that symbolized people’s thanksgiving to the Gods for the past year’s prosperity. At the end of the day and after singing carols from house to house, they would hang the branch wishing to continue this prosperity and welfare for the year to come as well. This was the tradition of Iresioni, which traveled to Northern Europe where, as the years went by, became what everyone came to know as the Christmas Tree.
Artpeckers main goal is to spread the Greek heritage and mythology all over the world, using contemporary design language. Geometric shapes and patterns give abstract forms to stories inspired by Greek mythology, tales & customs. Artpeckers design their creations with zeal and devotion bringing Greek stories in life and share them with people who already love them or are willing to.
