The Team

Callista Crafts operates as a nurturing community supporting individual growth and teamwork. This is a brand focusing on the sustainability and endurance of ethical fashion. It employs a total of 40 people, 25 of which in the workshop located in the North of Athens. The team’s structure is based on women artisans that share the same vision and values with our male team members.

The team is inspired by the unmissable flare of Greek traditional craftsmanship and its pairing with a contemporary aesthetic outlook and impeccable execution.
