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

I visited The Olive Wood House twice during my visits to the island of Lesvos. The shop is packed full with exquisite and unique handmade pieces from the wood of the olive tree. There is so much to see and marvel at. The owner, Mirsini is a friendly, warm and very hospitable lady. Whenever you go to Lesvos, make it a point to stop by this shop in Pamfila, just 10 minutes away from the centre of Mytilini. You will be pleasantly surprised and would want to go back again and again.

When visiting the island of Lesvos, I highly recommend making a stop at the Olive Wood House. The handmade olive wood crafts are beautiful and are a lovely gift for yourself or someone else. The owners are very hospitable and ever so nice.

Went there last year and had to go back again to get more wonderful hand carved olive wood products a beautiful manger scene, life like animals, salad utensils, snack trays, and much more. The owner’s wife takes personal interest in all of her customers and gift wraps anything that is purchased as a gift.

A wonderful way to take home something original from one of the 11 million olive trees on Lesvos Island.

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!

It is worth visiting that shop located in Pamfila only few kilometers away from the capital of Lesvos. It has a great variety of unique handcrafts made of olive wood. During my winter vacation I visited that shop in order to buy some gifts for my relatives. Everyone was enthusiastic for such novel presents. The owner of the shop was very friendly and helpful.

My parents visited the Olive Wood house while on vacation, and they gifted me a beautiful olive wood charcuterie board. It is such a special piece and something I plan to use for many, many years to come. They couldn't stop talking about the shop owners and their hospitality. I hope to visit myself next time I find myself in Greece.

Last summer, we visited Lesvos and we were looking for something traditional and local to buy.We were recommended by some people in Molyvos to visit the workshop by Prodromou in Pamfila to see their creations and to buy some of them.They were awesome. Great handicraft expertise by Mr. Michael. We saw the whole procedure from the wood logs to the final product. You can find household and decorative items.They were very friendly, they welcomed us and they told us that in April 2015, they are going to open a showroom selling retail for the first time, because so far they have sold wholesale all around Greece and Europe.
I think it's worth visiting them.You can't imagine how skillful Michael is and what he can make using a free-hand lathe

We visited the Olive Wood House this Easter and had a great experience here. Beautiful craftsmanship with the olive tree and a great shop. But the best part was to see the workshop and the kids were taught how to turn toys and necklace pendant out of olive tree. Homemade olive tree souvenirs were quite a catch. Thanks for a great afternoon.
