Gkonos Silk Fabrics

Abiding by the lyrics of the well-known Greek song "If you go to Kalamata and return safely, bring me a kerchief to tie around my neck", it goes without saying that you cannot leave Kalamata without buying a kerchief - the (non edible) trademark of the Messinian capital - as a souvenir.

Mr. Ioannis Gkonos runs a store in the town's shopping center, which is the oldest in Kalamata as it has been operating since 1895. There, among the huge selection of traditional, silk kerchiefs, one will definitely catch your eye.
