Beautiful historic wares made by local craftsmen!
May 2021 • Solo
I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience was at the Irida Family Workshop. The wares are all crafted by their family members locally and are of very high quality. I got a couple bronze recreations of Achilles’ helmet and cuirass, as well as a pair of earrings based off of the Minoan bee pendant. Needless to say, it is a must-do for any history buff, who will recognize some of the items from the nearby Heraklion Archaeological Museum. Konstantinos even walked me to a nearby restaurant that they recommended to me for lunch! They are very kind and friendly people, and I hope more visitors support local artists like them instead of buying the foreign knock-offs. Eviva!

Excellent Products

We went in after looking around at several stores. The products that the family produces are first rate. The jewelry is of a much higher quality than anything else we saw, from jewelry to hand painted magnets produced by the owners mother. The owner is an absolutely lovely woman and does not push products...she lets you see the choices and then lets you decide what you want it’s no presse.
