The Picholine pattern
It is both a classic and a very well-studied motif that allows you to enjoy the decoration of the cloth even when it is hung. In the center, the olive oil and ramekin filled up with olives are embellished with an olive branch. The ripe olives are enhanced by weaving. The drawing is « tone on tone » in a linen color background. Two side bands are dotted with calissons of neutral color as well. The inscriptions a little "vintage" extol the qualities of olive oil. These patterns are bordered by a black and gray frieze. The right border is composed of a garland of leaves and black olives with a play of shadows and light on the fruits. It is highlighted with several lines of color on both sides. On the left, only colored lines of different thicknesses complete the decoration of the rectangle. When you hang the tea towel, you will see the pretty olive garland and the colored borders.
Picholine, qu'es acò?
(What is it ? in Provencal) Picholine is the name of a variety of olive that is used in Provence for olive oil and to eat as aperitif. It is green and fruity, with a taste of apple and grass. Today, it is grown everywhere, but it was born in Gard (French department, West of Provence) in the seventeenth century to the delight of olive oil lovers.
