At the Benaki Museum shop you are guaranteed only the best craftsmanship. Their range of prints, homewares and jewellery are created in Greece by Greek designers. They have been commissioning replicas of their exhibits and artefacts for the last 35 years from craftsmen who adopt traditional methods.
