Ortigia, a small island off the coast of Syracuse, one of Sicily's most picturesque cities. During one of her travels, Sue Townsend, the brand's founder, landed on this beautiful island and fell in love with this unique land. Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Staufi, Angevins, Aragons and Bourbons are the peoples who have contributed to Sicily's beauty, and the creator of Ortigia Sicilia knows it well. She thus createda brand thattells the essence, colours and fragrances of this island in a collection of niche products for the body and home, from perfumes to creams, soaps, diffusers and iconic candles: Ortigia.
Ortigia Sicilia chooses to respect the land it celebrates: all products are natural base olive oil, vegetable glycerine and organic colours. The brand chooses to use and enhance natural Sicilian ingredients, such as Zagara or orange blossom, Lime, Bergamot, Pomegranate, Prickly Pear, Almond. A veritable hymnto the orange and lemon groves of Etna, the only place where the Red Oranges grow, to the Mandorla Amara, and the rich gifts of this land. All Ortigia Sicilia products are free of sls, nickel or silicone and are not tested on animals. These niche products are all manufactured by small family businesses that proudly claim the quality of their products.
The packaging certainly deserves a mention, with its fine paper and tin boxes handmade using silver foil with embossed lettering. Glass vases and flasks are decorated with motifs evocative of Gattopards and palmse, inspired by the mosaics of the Norman Palace in Palermo - the oldest royal residence in Europe. In recent years, Ortigia's collection, already rich in perfumes, room diffusers, candles, niche body productshas expanded its range of household products, such as glass plates and trays, with the great Sicilian inspiration that has always distinguished the brand.
