#Picturesque #Lefkara is the #village where the #Cypriot #FolkArt #needlecraft is born.

During the occupation period by the Venetians (1489 - 1570 A.D.), Lefraka is referred to as a summer resort for the #Venetian nobles and their families. According to some researchers, the Lefkara needle-craft known as the famous #lefkaritika/#lefkaritiko goes back to this period and the nobles’ wives influenced to some extent the technique used by the Lefkara women.
.
Furthermore, it is said that #LeonardoDaVinci, the big #Renaissance artist visited #Cyprus in the late 16th century as a guest of Catherine Cornaro - Queen of Cyprus. He then visited Lefkara and bought a big #tablecloth embroidered on all sides, which was donated to the #Milan Cathedral.

Lefkara Village, Larnaca, Cyprus 🇨🇾
Photo by @giorgoshadjisavvas
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.

I wish I knew how to make this. So delicate.. #cyprus #heartcyprus #cypriotandproud #lefkaritiko #tradition #embroidery #lefkaralace

Lefkaritika c1930-40. This rare antique tablecloth stands testament to the quality and craftsmanship of Cypriot-made textiles. Made with ("bandle") narrow widths of linen, consistent with that of locally produced homespun linen from #Zodia and #Astromeritis, #Morphou in beginning of the 20th century, when #Cypriot looms could only produce fabric up to 60cm in width. Two widths of linen were used to make this piece. One was cut in half and the resulting bands sewn to each end of the whole piece to make a large sheet of fabric for the embroiderer to work on. The seams were incorporated and hidden within the design, however they are still visible if you're looking for them. #lace #lefkara #cyprus #kypros #kibris #cypriot #culture #kultur #embroidery #handmade #reticella #vintage #drawnthread #cutwork #antiquelace #vintagelace #flax #homespunlinen #cypriotculture #lefkaritika #lefkaritiko #embroidery #embroideryart #antique #tablecloth
