Founded in 2012 by Mareva Grabowski and Dimitra Kolotoura, this Greek label unites Hellenic heritage, traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design elements. Paying homage to the handcrafting heritage and rich style legacy of its homeland, the brand has become synonymous with elegant Grecian sandals, artisanal needlework embroidery and soft, floating gowns in gauzy cottons that are perfect for summer days and nights.
With creativity, design and culture at its core, Zeus+Dione was born from a passion to revive and redefine the local craft of artisans all over Greece, by producing pieces that go beyond tradition, exceptional quality and fashion. Each piece is innovative, yet classical, contemporary yet timeless. Each custom made textile is weaved, dyed, embroidered and cut by expert artisans utilising traditional techniques with a contemporary edge. The label’s exclusive silk textiles are crafted uniquely for the brand in Soufli, a town in the north eastern part of Greece with a long history of producing fine silk. Silk shirts are embroidered in Argos and Metsovo, while dresses and skirts are knitted by the craftswomen of the Cyclades and Attica. And it doesn’t stop there. Beyond the production of custom textiles, selected designs are adorned with traditional patterns and intricate motifs handwoven in Crete, ensuring an elegant signature collection every season.
