Handicrafts of Northern Cyprus

Lefkara embroidery and lace is an old Cypriot tradition going back countless generations. Young and old women still produce the beautiful and intricate bed covers, table cloths, doilies and head-scarves. Carpet weaving is another age-old tradition of Northern Cyprus and is mostly found in the Famagusta region. Kilims (small floor rugs) generally with colourful striped designs with colourful striped patterns make ideal souvenirs or gifts. Wicker basket weaving is another Cypriot art form that is popular with tourists who tend to buy the colourful flat baskets (sele, in Turkish) to use as wall decoration.
