About
It is a family-based olive wood handicraft business making products of household, decorative and personal use, everything handmade. From April 2015, after 25 years of wholesale, there is a showroom with a vast variety of handmade olivewood items (and some complementary having to do with olive oil). The prices are much lower since you will be at the production source. It is unique in Lesbos and one of the few all over the world with exclusively olive wood products.You can also enjoy, join the whole production procedure down at the workshop or even propose your own ideas of new products. We are waiting for you, for an exciting experience. Working hours, daily service 10:00 am - 21:00 pm

    Highly Recommend
    I highly recommend the Olive Wood House. The items they have are such high quality, and they were so incredibly friendly and made us feel at home. I will treasure the items that I got there and my friends whom I have gifted items from there loved them. It is a must to stop here while on the island.

    Unique shop for olive tree wood lovers
    Lovely people running this small shop that will explain you the details of their artisanal activity. A shop with unique pieces made out of olive tree wood. It’s a must if you love olive tree wood items.

    Must visit!
    Olive Wood House is an amazing place with the most friendly staff. We were just looking for some souvenirs, but we got a tour around the workshop. It is wonderfull how the people craft the olivewood all by hand. We were treated very good and even got a refreshing drink. It is definitely worth a visit!

    A Must on Lesvos
    Can’t recommend this enough! Stopped in with my husband during our visit to find some pieces to bring home. Got so many things we had to ship them! The staff is incredibly welcoming, the craftsmanship is superb, and best of all, we got to take a tour of the factory downstairs and watch Michalis carve something from scratch! Σας ευχαριστούμε για τη φιλοξενία σας!

    You should see the beauty of olive products in the house of Mirsini, the owner of a local company. Her kind professional approach will help you choose from the offer of more than 3 000 types of products. I return often and they always take away quality practical things that I still use... The beatuty of the products and the quality of olive wood from Mirsini is a gift that will delight and daily use will bring you back memories of Lesvos.

We visited the Olive Wood House Shop, in July 2022, and it was really an amazing experience, they welcomed us with the nicest hospitality, we felt so welcome, they were so kind and sincere in their behavior. They served refreshment and snacks, it felt like visiting family :)

And they had the most beautiful things made from olive tree, really nicely made handcraft. It was such an artwork and the quality was so good. We bought some things for our kitchen and bathroom and it really decorates the room in a unique way.
And what a nice thing that they have used the branches from the pruning to make these beautiful things.

Can highly recommend this cozy shop <3

Absolute joy to walk around, and talking to the very kind and beautiful ladies inside. How can you ever rate it anything less than 5/5? Every piece is beautiful, the store oozes a tranquil atmosphere, and you get pampered like nowhere else. Coffee, water, candy ('please, take a handful, for tomorrow'), homemade sweets and cookies.

We bought so many cute and beautiful animal figurines, and they're all so great, we're not even going to hand them out to friends and family!

Must see, must visit, every time you're here!

We really enjoyed our visit to The Olive Wood House, in fact, it was the highlight of our week in Lesvos.
The range and quality of items is incredible. We had to buy the piece of olive branch that had been coated in gold as it's so beautiful.
The hospitality shown by Μυρσίνη was out of this world. Such a kind and generous person, we were made to feel like old friends. Thank you for everything!

While we enjoyed our visit to this shop and brought home souvenirs, I have since found identical items being sold on various websites as well as at local shopping malls. Some of the pieces look exactly like what we bought in Lesvos. I question the authenticity of the pieces being sold here. Perhaps some of it is handmade on-site but I don’t believe that it all is. Disappointed.

Our dear friend, Thank you very much for your visit! The items in our exhibition are made in our workshop, the only one on the island and in the North Aegean. We will be happy on your next visit to show you around the workshop and see how they are made! Mirsini Prodromou

This is a wonderful shop with a wonderful and hospitable owner. She went out of her way to make my visit a great experience, and even gave me home-made cake to eat later! The shop has anything olive related that you could want - woodcraft, oil, cosmetics, soaps, accessories… you name it, it’s here.

The shop is also open for a few hours on a Sunday during summer, which is rare for Mytilene. If the door is closed, just ring the bell.

This was one of my favorite places to visit. Great products and wonderful people. Real quality; perfect for shopping for christmas and birthday gifts or getting products that you will use for the rest of your life. A must when on Lesvos. Plan to spend at least an hour here.
