Overview

Do you know that Lefkara Lace, known as  'lefkaritika', taking name from the beautiful Larnaka village of Lefkara, is in UNESCO Intangible World Heritage List?

Lefkara is derived from a combination of the Greek words "lefka" ( Translation: white) and "ori" ( Translation: mountains, hills). This handcraft is an ultimate form of folk art and tradition in Cyprus. According to a legend, Leonardo Da Vinci had visited the village in 1481 and bought embroidery for the Holy Altar of the Milan Cathedral. How cool! :)
