The story behind our brand

Βούργια

Sounds all Greek to you?

Vouryia, is a handwoven backpack originally used by shepherds and farmers in rural Crete. It usually contained a piece of bread, a flask of wine, a knife and sometimes a flute. They packed inside everything that was essential for their journey up the mountains. Sometimes they also kept herbs found abundantly in the hills or a piece of wood that they would transform into a toy with their knife. Deeply connected with nature and tradition, they needed very little to be happy.

Today Vouryia is mostly used as a keepsake.

Our origins from Crete and our love for the local heritage inspired us to use “Vouryia” as a symbol of exploration.

So, pack your Vouryia and we will handcraft the perfect private local experience for you!
