Ortigia Sicilia

Tuesday, June 18th, 2019

We have introduced another fabulous new supplier to the Living Shop at Little Budworth; Ortigia Sicilia.

Ortigia Sicilia is a small Italian soap and scent company founded in Sicily by Sue Townsend in 2006. A range of luxurious soaps, scents, creams, lotions and candles made using natural Sicilian products inspired by the aesthetics, colours and scents of Italy’s most historic and tropical region.

The perfumes are distilled from the flowers of Sicily by their master perfumer, Lorenzo Villoresi.  The ingredients of all the Ortigia products are natural and use traditional products with modern ethics and integrity.

The name Ortigia comes from the small island that lies at the edge of the ancient fortified city of Siracusa, on Sicily’s south-eastern coast. This part of the island is known as “la Sicilia Orientale” because of its proximity to Africa and its tropical climate. Sicily is enriched with a colourful history of conquest, invasion and assimilation. The island’s history, reflected in the uniquely rich and layered culture that is found in Sicily today, has inspired the creation of the Ortigia range.

We are loving the highly decorative packaging designed by Sue Townsend which draws on exotic bright Sicilian images and colours.
