The divine scarf

Kridemnon is the scarf of Goddess Ino, who according to Homer’s texts, saved the much-travelled Odysseus from Poseidon’s wrath, it’s the scarf that protected Diogenes from the sun, it’s the royal purple headscarf of Olympia, embroidered with golden jewelry, it’s Antigone’s headscarf which covered her face the night when she took her decision or the headscarf of Diidamieas that blew in the wind while she was standing at the castle, peering east for the ship of Achilles to show.

Charged with symbolism

The scarf, an item charged with so many symbols, is the new project of the jewelry designer, Eva Papadopoulou: a collection of scarves called Kridemnon, with designs drawn from the Greek tradition. The designer has once more created a contemporary brand with references from ancient texts. With her collection entitled “The Ιmmortal collection”, she wanted to design in an exceptional way, an item which accompanies women from antiquity. Her recent collaboration with Ancient Greek Sandals, confirms the strength of cultural entrepreneurship and demonstrates that such collaborations can help connect the ancient Greek heritage with modern entrepreneurship and help showcase the Greek civilization, at the international scene of contemporary design.

Kridemnon in Homer

"Come, take this veil and stretch it beneath thy breast. It is immortal; there is no fear that thou shalt suffer aught or perish". And Odysseus obeys the goddess…
“This having spoken, the goddess gave him the veil, and she herself at one entered into the story sea like a sea gull, and a black wave covered her.”
