The owners of the firm “PAGONIS” specialize in the art of making leather goods and have been involved in this business, working on the island of Naxos since 1940. The first generation of the family learnt the secrets of leather and shoemaking from their uncles Andrea and Manoli Diasiti, who had a shoemaking workshop in the previous century.
In 1940 the three brothers of the Pagonis family made their own workshop, supplying the Naxos market with handmade shoes, whose notable characteristics were their innovative designs and their unrivalled quality.
In 1950 the family business moved to Athens where a modern shoe and leather goods factory was opened with the name of “ PAGONIS” Bros. The products were on sale in well known Athens shops.
In 1982 the name “PAGONIS” reappeared in Naxos, it’s owners running a successful business with two retail shoe and leather goods shops and a workshop. This new page in the history of the company was initiated by Kostas S. Pagonis, who belong to the second generation of the family.
