ΓΡΑΙΓΟΣ | grégos [noun] A wind blowing from Greece
According to the Mediterranean navy tradition, Grégos was the North East wind that brought the Venetians back home. A wind blowing from Greece.
My pappou Yiannis was a fisherman for living and a true stubborn. He was known to the locals as “to vremeno”, meaning in Greek the wet guy. He always came back to shore with his pants wet from the sea. Grégos is the line we created in the memory of my Pappou Yiannis.
We inherited his stubbornness and wanted this fishing boat to continue her journey through our sunglasses.
We used the wood of this boat in the outer part of the frame trying to maintain the look and finish of the boat, the rest of the frame is made of Oak wood.
The shape we chose for this line is MONK, a simple, yet refined design with a retro look and timeless lines.
We were really excited with the idea to combine the wood from the boat with a shape inspired by a Capuchin (Catholic monk), here in Ano Syros.
