Lotza‘s illustration depicts the picturesque beauty of the town of Espelette, famous for its unique pimento cheese. The red-tiled roofs, typical of the Basque region, add a touch of vibrant color to the scene, while the narrow, winding streets invite exploration. But it is the Espelette chili pepper that is truly at the heart of this illustration.
The garlands of peppers hanging from the facades are a testament to the history of the region, where local producers dried the peppers on facades exposed to the sun. Today, this tradition is celebrated by the colorful garlands that adorn the city’s buildings. But it’s not just the appearance that makes Espelette chili unique. The Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) applies only to dried chili, as the drying process concentrates its rich, spicy flavor.
This Lotza postcard is a tribute to the beauty and tradition of this iconic town in the Basque region, as well as to its signature chili pepper. With its vibrant colors and accurate representation of the city, this poster is a unique piece of art that will add personality to any interior.
