La Cigale in Provence 2016


Ancient walled-city of Carcassonne

While friends and family have been hunkering-down and digging out of 30+ inches of snow in Mount Gretna, PA, John, Nancy and Perry are in Provence, dining with friends, exploring the countryside and ancient cathedrals and strolling along the scenic beaches.

But, John and Nancy are also meeting with a handful of design shops and weave mills to preview 2016 collections that may be offered at La Cigale. In fact, La Cigale has worked hand-in-hand with these family-run shops throughout Provence for over 15 years to deliver the highest-quality, hand-made tablecloths and accessories.

Many families who own these design studios and print mills have kept this rich tradition and heritage of textile design alive for centuries!

Stay tuned for La Cigale's new 2016 Proven├žal Tablecloth and Country French accessory collections on the La Cigale website and Facebook page!

Below is a little peek at what we've been up to in Provence!
