Le Cicale was born in Milan in 2017 from the idea of four sisters who created a collection of textile products in natural linen and cotton for home.
Elena, Francesca, Cecilia and Alice Bellincioni, each with their own professional path, have found their common path in this textile project which starts from series of watercolors painted by their father.
By matching and combining those paintings, Le Cicale gave life to colorful patterns, reproduced with high definition digital printing on linen and cotton fabrics. Handcrafted in Italy, these fabrics turned into accessories for the home: tablecloths, decorative cushions, table runners, placemats, tea towels and aprons.
On Debou we present a selection of products from the two collections Mediterraneo and Fate.
A short description of your collection.
Watercolors turn into home textiles. The first collection, "Mediterraneo", features various fish from our sea, combined together in lively and balanced compositions, capable of bringing a touch of summer to city sofas and tables. With the second collection, "Fate", we explore the enchanted world of insects, which float on the linen, generating new and unexpected geometries.
What inspires you?
Our father, a lover of painting and nature, who passed on his passions to us and gave us the watercolors.
Your style in three words.
Fresh, lively and elegant.
Detail makes a difference... What’s yours?
In general, the attention to detail - from the elegant profiles to the fine tailored finishes - distinguishes all our products. What makes the difference, however, is the choice of yarns and the high quality of the print, which caresses the natural textures, enhancing the lightness of the watercolor trait.
