Provencal Lavender Sachet, Cicada

7.00

Provencal Sachet Collection

Made in France, this small sachet is an authentic Provence creation and the fabric pattern design is characteristic of the region.  The primary fabric colors are natural and cream with 18 grams of lavender and lavendin (grown at different altitudes - thus, the name differences) packed tightly in the sachet.  

A special touch is the white cicada attached to the neck of the sachet.  In Provence, during the summer months, cicadas fill the air with insect chanting - sometimes so loud that it is said they shorten the afternoon naps of the people.  Actually, it has to be in the high 70's in temperature for the cicadas to sing.  There is a saying, "Le soleil me fait chanter" /  "the sun makes me sing," that is attached to the familiar insect in this region.  Folklore has it that the cicada is a symbol of luck in Provence.

Size:  Approximately 2.5" W x 4.5" L
