The inspiration for this "𝑺𝒐𝒈𝒏𝒊 𝑺𝒊𝒄𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒂𝒏𝒊" comes from my family 𝑭𝒊𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒂. 𝑺𝒐𝒈𝒏𝒊 𝑺𝒊𝒄𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒂𝒏𝒊 in Italian means "Sicilian dreams."
It's inspired by how hard my family had worked every day and sacrificed for their own family.
At the end of the day, my Nonna and Nonno were not rich in money but rich in love and happiness with the little that they had.
My Nonna was only allowed to go to school for one month. She learned how to spell her name "Maria," and that was it. Her parents took her out of school because WW2 started, and she had to stay at home and take care of her siblings while they studied and her parents worked.
My Nonno was abandoned by his own mother and lived with his grandmother.
He had to work already as a child and find his ways all by himself. He worked as a hunter, a fisherman, and also with guarding lemon fields.
My Nonno and Nonna have worked hard all their lives with what they had at the time and with five children.
But they have always been able to be generous with the little they had. My Nonno and Nonna never let anyone go home hungry because there was always a place at their dinner table. This pattern is a tribute to my 𝒇𝒂𝒎𝒊𝒈𝒍𝒊𝒂 𝑭𝒊𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒂. My nonna and nonno always said, "𝑫𝒐𝒏'𝒕 𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒈𝒆𝒕 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒄𝒂𝒎𝒆 𝒇𝒓𝒐𝒎."

🍋𝑳𝒖𝒎𝒊𝒂 𝑩𝒆𝒅𝒅𝒂 🍋 is in the Sicilian language, and it means "beautiful lemons."
This pattern is inspired by the Sicilian lemon fields up on Mount Etna, which smell so fresh and lovely when you walk by. My Nonna, when she was young, worked on the lemon fields together with my Nonno. My Nonna had to collect all the lemons, and my Nonno had to guard the trees from thieves.

🧚🏼♀️𝑵𝒊𝒏𝒇𝒂 𝑺𝒊𝒄𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒂𝒏𝒂🧚🏼♀️ is in the italian langue and means "The sicilian nymph".
This pattern is inspired by the myths in the sicilian history.
The colours is inspired by the combination of the lava from Etna meating the sea. This pattern is a lovestory how the lava wants to be reignited with its love the sea...

💃🏽 𝑻𝒓𝒂𝒅𝒊𝒛𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒊 💃🏼 in Italian means "traditions". The 𝑻𝒓𝒂𝒅𝒊𝒛𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒊 pattern is inspired by Sicily's rich history and culture. Such as Pupi Siciliani, Carretto Siciliano and the history of different Kingdoms that had Sicily in different centuries.
All of this is reflected in our Sicilian culture. Each part of Sicily has its own tradition that has been passed down through centuries.

Sapuri Di Mari
🌊𝐒𝐚𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐢 𝐝𝐢 𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐢 🌊 is in the Sicilian language and means "The taste of the sea".
The 𝐒𝐚𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐢 𝐝𝐢 𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐢 pattern is inspired by the combination of the sweetness and the saltyness in Sicily.
A rich culture with a lot of history, its own folklore, its own language, its own flag, its own music, a tasteful food culture, with a beautiful and enriched nature, as well as a Volcano. All combined in one island. 𝑺𝒊𝒄𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒂 𝑩𝒆𝒅𝒅𝒂.
