This was also the inspiration behind our logo. It resembles a flower made using the world known Lefkaritika lace embroidery and is a symbol women entrepreneurship. Lefkara is a village in Cyprus that has an ancient history in lace making dating from 1191. Women of the village have been involved in lace making with traditionally inspired patterns as well as in trading them in the world.🇨🇾

Lefkara Village, Larnaca, Cyprus 🇨🇾

Lefkara is a province in the Larnaca district and an independent municipality of Cyprus. The village is known for its embroidery as well as its silverware. The name comes from the white colour of the limestone in the surrounding mountains. The village is divided into two parts, Pano Lefkara which form the municipality and Kato Lefkara which is a community. Lefkara is located at the south side of the Troodos Mountains at an altitude of about 500 metres and is at a distance of about 40 kilometres from the town of Larnaca.

History

Chronographer Leontios Machera mentions Lefkara as being the birth place of Saint Neophytos (1134-1219). The house where Saint Neophytos met with his future wife before leaving to become a monk still exists as a part of a newer house, while the road brings the name of the saint.

During the Frank Rule, Lefkara were a feud and were included in the royal feuds. According with the legend, the village was visited by Leonardo Da Vinci in 1481, who bought an embroidery for the church of the Cathedral of Milano.
