Carretto Siciliano, a folk art tradition in southern Italy for about 300 years, is named after the horse-drawn push carts that are painted with colorful geometric imagery. There were similar artistic traditions throughout western Europe, and as the style migrated internationally it became even richer by blending with local artistic traditions, notably in the Americas. That's why Mexican Talavera Pottery and Huichol yarn painting resemble Carretto. We can still see the DNA in the graphics of modern-day race cars and lowriders, with their exuberant cacophony of logos, pinstripes, and flames.
Cycling jerseys may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you see a pushcart, but we couldn't help ourselves.
"At a glance, it's just a normal shirt. Put it on however and you realize it's made of the same material as the best cycling jerseys. If you've never ridden in a shirt before you're missing out; on hot days the additional airflow more than offsets the aero drawbacks (unless you're actually racing), and having one made of Lycra elevates the form even more over cotton and linen offerings. What's more, there's even a rear pocket for your phone.
Perfect for dress-down Friday at the office before heading straight from work for a quick blast to the pub in the sunshine without needing an awkward wardrobe change in the loos." - Cycling Tips
