Participating students will be able to design products using the actual materials washed up on the shores of Lesvos, in the refugees' attempt to cross over from Turkey.

We are moving

September 15, 2016

After a decade of operating in central Athens, we are taking our talents (and workshop) to suburbia, where we always found refuge. The time has come for Greece is for Lovers to indulge in a more nomadic lifestyle, so as of the beginning of Fall 2016 we shall administer all enquiries online. Looking forward to your support at this new stage of studio GIFL.

We are officially on Greek holiday time!

August 6, 2016

We are finally away on summer vacation. Please bear with us while we recharge till the end of August. Our studio will remain closed, however we shall respond at a slightly slower pace. Thank you for your patience and happy holidays!
