Penelope (in Greek Πηνελόπη) was the wife of Odysseus, King of Ithaca, the main character Homer’s Odyssey. She is known for her patience and fidelity, as she waited 20 years for the return of her husband, steadfastly deflecting the 108 suitors asking her hand in marriage. She used many tricks to delay her suitors expectations. One of which was to weave a burial shroud for Odysseus’s elderly father declaring she will choose a suitor when this task has finished. But every night she would partly undo the work she done during the day.

The eye-like symbols are widely spread in the mediterranean culture. In Greece, they already existed in ancient times, as for example on either side of vessel’s bow. The idea is to use the eye symbol as a talisman or amulet to protect against the evil eye (in Greek μάτι, mati). The evil eye is not necessarily given by someone wishing you harm but it also can be the result of admiration! So, some Greeks prevent the evil eye by saying (in Greek φτου, ftou) after complimenting you, for the evil eye not to affects you. Now, no need to believe or not in this tradition to love this colourful pattern.
