The "Indians" of Provence

I just love these fabrics. They're known as indiennes, because that's where they originally came from, but they sing of Provence, with their bright, Mediterranean-coloured patterns of lavender, olives, sunflowers - and even the dread cicada. You can buy very high-end versions of them at outlets such as Olivades or Souleiado, but I like the cheap and cheerful versions on sale at just about any street market in the south. The story behind les indiennes is fascinating too. Click here to read more.
