This handmade Rope Gouria is a special nod to sailors, sturdy handmade rope used for the fishing netting and boats around the Greek islands, venturing out to sea day after day to feed their communities with courage, strength and hope.
Still created today using the same techniques to create a strong, sturdy rope, they have also become Gouria, decorated with Evil Eyes, bright colored ribbons and other decor, to use as a wall hanging or display anywhere in the house, as a symbol to keeping evil "at bay", away from the home. These make a wonderful house gift too!
This is a one of a kind piece, measures approx 15" in length
Handmade in Greece by Ioanna
