Καπνός | Tobacco

101 notes on oriental tobacco
The exhibition «ΚΑΠΝΟΣ | TOBACCO» views oriental tobacco from a variety of historical perspectives and presents it as a multifaceted commercial product. From the needles used in the stringing of the leaves, the spiking process in the villages, the ‘tonga’ process for bundling tobacco leaves and the wooden chests used in commercial processing, to the imposing tobacco warehouses of northern Greece and the intricately made cigarette cases and packs in Athens and Thessaloniki, the exhibition presents the history of tobacco and, through it, an important part of the history of Greece.
