Eteo is devoted to the pursuit of design beauty and superior olive oil quality, creating products of excellence. Thrived in rich tradition with our family history of superior olive oil production, eteo is synonymous with quality and luxury.
Our inspiration has its origins in one of the most ‘genuine’ eras of antiquity – ever since Homer, the greatest poet of all, ushered-in the word ”eteo” to describe the native, the authentic, the genuine inhabitants of the island of Crete, the Genuine Cretans: The Eteocretans.
The shape of our bottle – that of a perfect drop – embodies both, Genuineness and Elegancy. Two genuine elements – porcelain and olive wood, both handmade, are borrowed from Mother Earth and brought into harmony with one another, creating the “perfect drop – like” shape of our bottle.
The harvesting and milling of our olives is performed with much devotion and respect – devotion during the harvest that allows the retention of the healthy properties of our high – quality olives, and respect during the milling process that ensures that our organic extra virgin olive oil is of premium quality.
