Karagkiozis is the protagonist of the Greek Shadow Theatre, a type of theatrical play acted out with figures moving behind a white sheet. A traditional figure of Greece, Karagkiozis is in reality a symbol, representing the average Greek in the times of the Turkish occupation, viewed as an impoverished, cunning and uneducated individual. B612’s set of stud earrings incorporate a figure that is tightly bound to the Greek tradition, onto a set of unique fabric earrings that stand out!
B612 creations are combinations of words, pictures and colors that can stand the test of time and cause intense feelings to whomever wears them. They communicate their messages through symbols and accessories, while raising issues that concern modern Greece, in their own way.
