Bring the Mediterranean home.™
The Journey Begins
On Thursday, May 28, 2020, Ithacabound.com went live.
Ithacabound.com is an e-commerce website where people can shop the Mediterranean for their favourite products and source them from the exact Mediterranean countries they so desire.
The impetus for the idea was after its founder, Andrew Schiestel, visited the legendary Island of Ithaca, Greece and had difficulty sourcing to Canada a Greek-made shampoo that he had fallen in love with and became accustomed to using while on the island.
As the Ithacabound.com's Story describes, Andrew's Airbnb host and now friend, Christina, would courier him allotments of shampoo all the way from Greece but this process couldn't last long-term.
Ithacabound.com exists for people to shop the Mediterranean for their favourite products and have them couriered right to their homes. It further allows people to make the Mediterranean culture and lifestyle more part of their every day life.
Ithacabound.com will start with Artwork available for purchase and expand into over a dozen product categories across all the countries in the Mediterranean Basin, making available thousands of products in the coming years.
Enjoy shopping at Ithacabound.com, the place where you bring the Mediterranean home.
