Meet Sister

a platform for curated, handcrafted products lovingly made under the Mediterranean sun.

Born in Cyprus, Aphrodite’s birthplace, Sister curates and designs products from the island, supporting the local craftsmanship and breathing life back into century-old, artisan trades.

Sister jewellery is handcrafted by two brothers, George and Panagiotis, in the picturesque village of Lefkara, in a workshop they have been running since 1968. Sister jewellery draws inspiration from traditional Cypriot mythological and Christian images, statues and stories.

Sister ceramics are thrown, fired and glazed by Panikos, a ceramics artist near the coastal city of Limassol. Panikos' ceramics are functional pieces in evocative curves and expressive colours; vases, carafes and plates, essential to the Southern Mediterranean “meze” style of eating, often impressed with traditional Cypriot lace. From clay to finished product, a piece can take up to 4 weeks to complete. Get to know Panikos, a person full of positive and infectious energy, and you'll soon realise that his work is purely a labour of love. When he is not creating, Panikos dedicates his time to children and adults with disabilities, opening up his workshop and teaching them how to bring their own clay creations to life.

Behind Sister

Sister was created by Antonia, a Cypriot, now living in Berlin. At the start of 2018 her lifelong desire to create a brand that supports the island’s local craftsmanship became a ‘now or never’ project. Having been abroad for over 12 years, she felt the need to creatively reconnect with her birthplace and to rekindle her fascination for Cypriot heritage, the traditions that make it so unique and the enchanting stories that are passed on through the generations, under lemon trees. 

And so, Sister was born.
