But what really enchants the visitors are the handicrafts created by the local women. Wonderful embroideries and woven fabrics known for their beauty. Especially the embroideries from Karia are made with a special technique totally different from any other technique used in Greece.

White lace knitting in different sizes and the creation of blankets with designs that have their roots in the Byzantine era are also exquisite. Buy some as a present for your friends back home.
