Finally specific mention must be made regarding the Syrrako trade of wool woven articles and particularly kapas, a sector that Syrrako and its residents truly triumphed in. Their massive trade movement was assisted by the more general coincidences in the area of the Balkans and the Adriatic. The trade of kapas flourished in the entire pre-revolutionary period in Ipirus. The Ipirus tradesmen had the ability of importing inexpensive raw materials from their country. At the same time the founding of new and the growth of older cities of Ipirus, the contact of the locals with the immigrants, the significant ports of Ipirus contributed to the growth of commerce.
During the period of the greatest peak of trade Ioannina was the most significant commercial center for the distribution of products. In the time of the Ali Pasha 1200 needles worked in Ioannina. Following that commerce declines and the market of Ioannina is flooded by Syrrakian tradesmen.
