“Re-Mentality” UpCycling: As enthusiasts of circular economy and pro optimal uses of resources, we use resources optimally. We repair defective scarves and when this is not possible, we transform them into something new such as dresses or kimonos [we have zero silk waste and we absorb 100% of the cost]. For these Holidays, we bring you the MANTILITY Cahiers of Silk. In collaboration with a traditional book binding company we have produced one-of-a-kind limited edition Notebooks and Calendars “dressed” in our silky creations. Grab yours now!

This 100% MANTILITY silk diary depicts an extraordinary ceiling fresco, that decorates the “Kois Mansion”. Built in 1860, the Mansion, residence of Kois family, is located in the heart of Hermoupolis, the capital town of Syros Island. Expressing the classicism prevailing in the architecture of Europe at the time, is adorned with an imposing pediment, which occupies the entire facade.
The ceiling fresco gives the silk scarf the name “Orofografia” and represents eight of the gods of ancient Greeks – Zeus, Hermes, Themis, Apollo, Dimitra, Athena and four leading features of the Greek War of Independence against the Ottomans back in the 1821; Rigas Feraios, Georgios Karaiskakis, Theodoros Kolokotronis and Constantine Kanaris. The fresco is completed by a frieze painting, crowned with a brim which leads to an ornamentation typical of the Ionic order.
