Fyti village and museum

There was a time when from every household there could be heard the ‘clacking’ of the weavers loom. Few now keep up the craft tradition, but in the quiet village of Fyti the sound of the loom can still be heard, and it is here that some of the designs known as ‘Fythkiotika’ can be admired, with designs having been handed down from medieval times. These bright, richly coloured handcrafted fabrics make perfect gifts, and act as a lovely memory of a holiday spent in Cyprus where arts and crafts still flourish. Examples of these textiles are exhibited in the Fyti museum.
