Stamatia Barlama, a former civil engineer, decided to blend her artistic talents with her love for fashion and created the brand Ayios. Ayios means blessed, adored… This variety of clothes is glorified as it embodies a journey through light, faith and universal love. The Ayios symbol is a halo ring, the circle of light that surrounds a luminous body created by refraction through ice crystals in the atmosphere. All jackets are hand-painted by Stamatia and all quotes on the clothes are inspired from the Bible and are real detachments of Apostles. It is all about faith & love.
