Located in the village of Karia, 14 km from Lefkada Town, the Folklore Museum of Lefkadian Embroidery houses a private collection of embroideries. It was established in the 1990s by Theodoros Katopodis in honor of Maria "Koutsohero" Stavraka, the biggest embroidery artist in this area who created the traditional stitching style called karsaniki.

The museum consists of two levels. The ground floor houses original antique furniture and everyday objects you would typically find in a traditional house of Lefkada. Many of these items date back to the 18th and 19th centuries.
The upper floor is focused on embroidery. The textiles of this exhibition allow you to explore the traditional patterns of embroidery in Lefkada.
