Greek embroidery at the Sponge Industry Folk Arts Festival

Greek embroidery at the Sponge Industry Folk Arts Festival

Date
1989-06-24
Description
Nineteen color slides. Greek embroidery displayed. Brief biographies of the embroiderers (some pictured) can be found in the folder. The festival was held June 24-25, 1989 to celebrate Tarpon Springs heritage of sponge diving, a practice that dated back to the 1890s. By 1905, when 500 Greek immigrants answered an ad to be sponge divers, the town acquired a distinctive Greek flavor, as the Greek Americans thrived in the sponge industry. At one point, Florida provided 95% of the nation's sponges. Although today over fishing and synthetic materials have undercut the sponge diving industry, the tradition lives on in Greek families, and through tourism.
