Cyprus Alive spoke with the manager of Layia Village Crafts, Mr. Peter Gallagher. Read the interview below to find out more about the beautiful products offered.
1. When was Layia Village Crafts established?
2. What products do you offer?
Various custom made items, such as: Custom olive wood, Jewellery, Glass designs, Honey products, Oil Paintings, Wax balms and so much more!
3. Where is Layia Village Crafts located?
It is located in Lageia Village in the Larnaka District.
4. Mr. Gallagher what makes your shop stand out?
We are only specialising in 100% custom handmade artwork, working and engaging with mother nature. Working off the land and close to nature brings you a unique feeling which is transferred in to all the item thus keeping the Cypriot culture alive.
5. What is your Goal for Layia Village Crafts?
I hope to have brought a new dimension to agrotourism in Cyprus as people who choose to spend their holiday time in Agrotourism do so because they also want to be close to nature and its stunning beauty, the products that we create will reflect this. I can give people a totally natural handcrafted souvenir of their time here in Cyprus.
6. Any Future Plans?
Yes! In the very near future, in 2020, we will establish a new habitat sanctuary bringing a new dimension to the work we do.
7. Any other comments or information you would like to share?
There are a number of artists involved with more becoming involved and expanding the talents of the Layia Village Craft shop. These artists have a feeling of the workmanship they produce. It can take many hours to produce just one item, but this one item cannot be replicated by a machine or factory, as it is made with love and emotions.
Thank you very much Mr. Gallagher. We wish you all the best and we are sure that people will be impressed and enjoy the great products you offer!
