Biography
Two friends, a marketeer and a financier came together to create a New Greek brand that will combine traditional craftsmanship with modern design elements. Two friends who share the same attributes, aesthetics and values, Dimitra and Mareva, decided to join forces and focus on creating a brand that will reflect their taste and personality.

Both established in their fields, within and beyond Greek borders, they have turned their attention on a new segment of the fashion industry which they feel has not been properly explored: handcrafted sandals, embroidered shirts and kaftans, limited edition handbags and unique jewellery, small furniture and home-wear all inspired by traditional patterns. Their vision is to bring forth and support authentic artistic creation and craftsmanship from all parts of the country. Through their use of premium quality material, the richness of Greek heritage is being revisited with a fresh eye. Zeus + Dione is a creative response from a country in transition.

Company profile
In a world dominated by mass produced items in all aspects of life, Zeus + Dione launch a collection of premium quality leather sandals, embroidered silk shirts, kaftans and trousers, crochet accessories, unique gold jewelry and limited edition leather handbags made of raw materials, sourced by Greek makers with a long tradition in their craft.The collection embodies a modernized translation of Doric shapes complimented by a natural pallet of colours. Throughout the collection there is a constant dialogue between solid and transparent elements of the rich Greek heritage that is being celebrated and revisited with a fresh eye. Zeus + Dione is the brainchild of two friends, a marketeer and a financier with equal passion for fashion and Greece! Sharing common attributes, aesthetics and values, Dimitra Kolotoura and Mareva Grabowski joined forces to focus on creating a brand of handcrafted items with vision to bring forth and support authentic artistic creation and craftsmanship from around the country. Both established in their fields, within and beyond Greek borders, they decided to deep their toes into a new field that has not been explored at that level before.The brand's name is inspired by ancient Greek mythology. According to Homer, Zeus, the king of Olympians, and Dione, the Mother Goddess, were parents to the most beautiful creature on earth: Aphrodite. Celebrated across ancient Greece in the Aphrodisia festival, the goddess of love, lust and fertility had many lovers, mortals and immortals. Throughout the centuries, Aphrodite has been depicted or referred to as an adult; nubile and infinitely desirable! A symbol of abiding beauty, she has always been associated with elegant creatures and elements of nature: doves, swans, pomegranates, apples, myrtle, rose trees, lime trees, but mostly the sea, dolphins, clams, scallop shells and pearls - just like in Botticelli's eternal masterpiece! Legend has it that Aphrodite possessed a magic girdle, which had the power of inspiring love and desire to those who wore it. And this is exactly the aim of Zeus + Dione ... To bring to life and share with the world objects of unique beauty which will be worn and cherished. Forever!
