Our Story

We believe we all have a Grasshopper and an Ant inside of us. That is, we all need a good work-life balance for our well-being.

Inspiration

Nature, tradition, design and colour inspires us. This can be seen in the hand picked selection of products in our Store. We favour products that are made of natural and traditional materials, such as clay, wood and metal, that are beautifully designed with local craft-manship and brings us back to child-hood memories.

The Name

The name Cigale & Fourmi is a French ancient Fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant. The Grass-hopper is laid-back, social and likes leisure, the Ant is a hard worker. We believe we all have a Grasshopper and an Ant inside of us. That is, weall need a good work-life balance for our well being.

Philosophy

An ecological, green lifestyle, an aesthetically pleasing environment and having fun are important factors for a good life. This is the philosophy we have in mind when choosing products for our shop.
