It all started in 1946 - after the war, when Takis Christopoulos had the inspiration to use parachutes from the war to make bras. Why parachutes? Because they were made from silk and it happened to be lighter, stronger and thinner…..and very cheap at that time.. Why bras? Because his wife Loula knew how to sew and make ‘sur measure’ underwear as she was a seamstress at that time in a small industry. The idea happened to be fantastic as a few years later they had their own shop in the center of Athens and they had customers ‘la crème de la crème’ of Athens. Actresses, singers, the wives of politicians etc. Maria Callas, Aliki Vougiouklaki and Nana Mouschouri were some of their famous clientele.
In 2002 the third generation gets the reins and a few years later Miss Crool, a younger and fresher swimwear line is being born! This line takes the Company a step further up and now Crool & Miss Crool Swimwear are sold all over Greece and in 20 countries around the world.
