Since 1960, Savapile have been making raffia bags and hats ...and fishermans caps. Savapile is the only remaining hat maker in Greece, that uses the traditional 'by-hand' millinery method. The name derives from Liza's fathers name Mr Sava Sarigiannidis.
Ever since she was a child, Lisa would visit her father (Sava) at his workshop. She would closely watch him handcraft raffia and fishermans hats. In 2001, she began Savapile and is now known as Athens last rafiia and fishermans hat maker using tradiitional tools and handmade techniques.
