Championing Cypriot Crafts

Established in 2015, the Phivos Stavrides Foundation - Larnaca Archives is a research centre for the history and culture of Cyprus, focusing on literature, archaeology and immaterial cultural heritage. Its collection includes more than 50,000 documents, old and rare books and unique publications from or pertaining to Cyprus. The foundation organises conferences, exhibitions and events, and publishes books on history, art and crafts in collaboration with its partners. It designs and curates museum exhibitions relating to traditional Cypriot crafts and their application to contemporary life, and arranges practical workshops to promote the learning of traditional crafts, such as Lefkara lace, with special emphasis on their development according to contemporary aesthetics and the needs of local society.
