Springtime is about to begin and Sicily is ready to be filed with its light, colours and scents, a renewed energy that we feel everywhere around us and that - here in PUTIA - finds new drives and outbursts, inspiring in turn creativity and beauty.
It’s not just nature though, all our senses are invited to awaken as well. That’s for this reason that we want to recommend you our selection of six spring-inspired products, full of imagination and suggestions for the senses, which find in Sicily, already a cradle for creative inspiration, their perfect home.
Diving into Spring scents: the lavender fish by Elena Scarlata
Hand-printed cute little fish made with with eco-cotton in a number of colourful patterns, all different but all with the same vintage taste. However, the eye is not the only thing that gets tickled: these fish hide an aromatic secret inside, dried lavender flowers, which spread their delicate scent in the air. They are the perfect gift idea - whether it’s to yourself or to someone else - a small token that literally smells of Sicily and Spring.
Bonus: if lavender is the scent of your heart, we also suggest you to take a look at this lavender soap by Saponificio Varesino: three small practical soaps made according to ancient handcrafted techniques and rich with the intense scent of lavender.
Nature’s innate elegance: the brass brooches by Studio Kepha
The brooches of this limited series are made of brass and represent a way to celebrate nature and its shapes, always new and always different, symbol of a vital energy that never ceases to move, a richness that gives constant birth to new life. Each brooch is a unique and original piece, made by Studio Kepha and inspired by different plants. An elegant accessory, with delicate and refined lines, skillfully crafted.
The beauty of a flower becomes a true work of art: “Iris” by Stefania Cordone
The word “Iris” comes from Greek and means “rainbow”. It is associated to the flower because it comes in many colourful varieties. In this version by artist Stefania Cordone however, it is not the colour that’s the centre of our attention, but the lines that compose its figure, delicate, almost ethereal, and yet deeply carved in the wood matrix that serves as the base for this amazing xylography.
This way, a flower - already an expression of nature’s wonders - becomes an actual work of art, eternal in its ethereal beauty.
A touch of colour for an old-fashioned style: Scocca Papillon
A “bow” for every occasion, a colour for every mood, different materials and patterns combined with elegance to celebrate a refined old-fashioned style. The Scocca Papillon are unique pieces made with scraps of fabric, a cheerful and colourful selection to properly welcome spring with a vintage accessory.
Sicilian nature and its colours: the mini-cactuses by Stile Libero
A collection of cute crocheted mini-cactuses made by artisan Maria Maggio, with that simple touch of colour that makes a difference. These small crocheted plants are her tribute to Sicily, a land that spreads and inspires beauty, rich of colours and visual wonders. A nature that offers endless creativity that she is able to catch and recreate, portraying it with cheerfulness and vibrant energy.
Beauty born from beauty: original notebooks that inspire creativity and imagination
Spring means also sunny days that invite you to spend as much time outside as possible, surrounded by that very nature that we like so much to celebrate here. By feeding on it, the mind finds new inspirations, new creative drives. That’s why we don’t want just to recommend to you our Sicilian creativity, but we also wish to invite you to nourish your own creative flow, to welcome and use the energy that spreads from its awakening.
As a last treat then, we recommend our selection of unique notebooks, inspired by the talent and imagination of their creators, made with love to inspire you in turn. On PUTIA you will find the Edizioni Precarie Collection, with notebooks that tell the story of Palermo’s traditional markets and the Artists’ agendas by Glifo Edizioni ready to welcome your stream of creativity. Thoughts, drawings, sketches, notes, there’s no limit to what your imagination can conceive when surrounded by the right inspirations.
We leave you therefore with an invitation to start your own creative season!
