Cigales (or cicadas) are the symbol of Provence. Their distinctive melody is the first sign that summer has arrived in Provence.
According to Provençal folklore, God sent the cicada to rouse peasants from their afternoon naps on hot summer days and prevent them from becoming lazy. The plan was a dismal failure! The peasants were relaxed by the constant buzzing, which encouraged them to have an afternoon siesta.
Combine cigales with olive branches set against a bright blue sky and you have an iconic French tablecloth that sings with the sounds of summer all year round.
Approx 45cm x 30cm. Cotton with polyester matting inside to give a slightly padded fee. Normal machine wash in cold or warm water. .
