Learn more about Panos, the founder of Kantyli.com, and the history behind his products.
I’ve been creating and working with my hands for as long as I can remember. For many years, I enjoyed working as an architectural model maker. Today, my biggest pleasure comes from crafting Greek-themed products that my customers won’t find anywhere else and making gifts Greeks love.
At Kantyli, we’re proud to offer products that can be personalized and customized to suit customer’s needs. It makes us happy knowing that one of our customized signs hangs in an espresso shop in Seattle, Washington and another in a California winery. It’s thrilling to see Greeks from all over the United States enjoying our products. From custom road and welcome signs to aprons, mugs and even models of your own church, we have the perfect gifts and items to celebrate all things Greek.
In 2004, I published a book called; "Ecclesia: Greek Orthodox Churches of the Chicago Metropolis."
This volume presents a comprehensive documentary review of parishes across the Metropolis of Chicago. The richness of the Greek-American experience comes alive in this diverse offering of personal stories, beautiful full-color photographs and introductory articles that explain in the internal structure, symbolism and significance of church interiors and designs, as well as the communities that brought them into existence.
