Cikis comes from a word that Alice’s grandfather used with love while tickling her, “cikis cikis cikis!”. We discovered that the word was used in the Sicilian dialect, “chichissi”, and apparently originates from the word “cikis”, “exit”, imported by Turkish corsairs who arrived in Sicily. Cikis is the way out for the fashion sector, now excessively polluting. It is also a way to remember our origins, because taking care of the environment and society means taking care of the people we love.
For this close bond with Sicily, the floral motifs used in the ceramics of Caltagirone, a city of inspiration for several designers, were taken as inspiration. On the basis of those geometries, the “C” of Cikis was born.
The color is coral, beautiful and fundamental for the ecosystem, a treasure of nature to be protected from the risk of extinction that is currently running.
