Cyprus Handicraft Centre

Athalassas Avenue

The mission of the state-run Cyprus Handicraft Centre is to support Cyprus’s long history of crafts and artisanal products. You’ll find a large selection of handmade items here like lace, pottery, weaving and baskets and you can see artisans making them at the store. Cypriot weavers still use traditional techniques that will have you thinking of Homer’s Penelope sitting at her loom. The main location is in Nicosia, but there are also branches in Larnaca, Limassol and Paphos.
