In 1958 a young and talented girl, LISA TSIRIKA, who became Mrs. Soulos 10years later, was starting her carrier as a designer in one of the biggest textile mills in Greece. By 1960, she had made up the decision to start her own business and involve in embroidery designing. So, she took the big step and that year she started her own business, designing original gobelin miniatures on silk. Very soon her unique and inspired work made her one of the leader in the market.
In 1972, she and ANDREAS SOULOS, her husband who was already involved in screen printing, decided to establish a new company producing PRINTED CANVASSES FOR EMBROIDERY. They called their canvasses "GOBELIN L", where the "L" stands for Lisa.
In 1999 "A. SOULOS & Co" (GOBELIN L) acquired the competing company "DIAMANT" and since then has been producing both collections.
By the middle-end of ‘90s, their son Yiannis Soulos and their son in law Vasilis Barakos took over the responsibility of guiding the company to new challenges and new ideas.
"I. A. SOULOS & Co" specializes in printed canvasses, cushion kits and needlework kits. Company’s premises are located in a suburb close to Athens and the international airport. A newly built factory of 2,000 square meters with modern, high capacity equipment and machinery make it capable of preparing and delivering orders fast and reliably with no sacrifice of quality.
GOBELIN L is one of the main suppliers to the Greek market and exports to more than twenty five countries. Creativity, new ideas, high quality and customer service have always been the aspects that we invest in for the present and future of our business. Thank you for making us your choice.
