A RENDEZVOUS WITH
Hotel guests were recently treated to a demonstration of how Retrovi’s unique handbags are created during the course of a two-day event at Anassa Resort in Latchi, Paphos.
The happening provided guests with the opportunity to see, first-hand, how the Lefkaritiko and Fythkiotiko fabrics are actually created by craftswomen continuing a Cypriot tradition that goes back hundreds of years. The guests also got an exclusive front-row view of how Retrovi’s skilled bag-maker then incorporates the exquisite traditional materials into unique, contemporary handbags.
They learned that every Retrovi bag is accompanied by a short text introducing them to the Cyprus queen each particular design is named after. Reading about the life and times of Berengaria of Navarre, Alice of Champagne, Isabella of Ibelin, Eleonora of Aragon, Charlotte, Elena Palaiologina, and Caterina Cornaro provides each bag owner with an enticing glimpse into Cyprus’ colourful history.
Retorvi, meanwhile, has also created another line, Aphrodite. Named after the Greek goddess of love and beauty who emerged from Cyprus’ sea, this line incorporates the art of crochet.
Those attending the event at the Anassa Resort were very impressed by both the quality of the one-of-a-kind Retrovi creations and in the way they are painstakingly hand-crafted. While enjoying cocktails at the hotel, the guest also showed great interest in learning more about Retrovi and its exciting products from the ladies behind the fashion-forward initiative, Myrna Pattichis and Myrto Fereo.
As well as the Anassa Resort, the Retrovi collection is currently also exclusively available at the Almyra Hotel in Paphos, Kult Limassol & Kult Nicosia.
