The history of Old Port Souvenir Center dates back to the 1890's. Captain Stylianos Moraris started fishing sponges throughout the Mediterranean Sea in his 25 meter boat. He was born and lived on the famous little island of Symi, near Rhodes. Fishing sponges became a family tradition and was passed from father to son. After the Second World War, Captain Stylianos's son, Gregoris, moved to Famagusta, Cyprus and continued harvesting and processing the sponges. The tradition was then passed to his grandson, Andreas. In 1974, when he moved with his family to Limassol as a refugee, he expanded the company, building his own factory in the industrial area of town. This is where the bleaching and packing of sea sponges and natural Loofah products takes place. Andreas has since added many other activities to the company, but the main field remained always the natural sea sponges and the natural loofah. Later on was added the olive oil and essential oil soaps production.

While you are in Cyprus and you pass from Limassol you will have the opportunity to visit the Old Port Sea Sponges Exhibition Center to choose your own sponge and loofah. Also you can select from their wide range of Olive Oil cosmetics and Dead Sea cosmetics for your skin and body care.
