Precisely with regard to the sentence above, both by chance and by intuition, we have developed something that would suit anyone who practices the magnificent arts of card magic and the world of collecting, for those, therefore, who want to make cardistry or magic games with cards or, also, for all those who love to have on their shelves a rare object and super limited edition, given that the dedication that we have affixed to this project, attention to detail, attention to beauty, make this product a jewel for the collection of playing cards. It took us almost a year to complete the deck of cards, for the continuous aesthetic and qualitative changes, but now, we believe to have reached a product that can meet the needs of all lovers of the industry, also thanks to the great work of our graphic designer Vincenzo. The idea of Oxalis is based on a common passion for the world of plants and botany and on the concepts of enhancement and respect for nature. In fact, one of the distinctive features of this plant consists in having heart-shaped leaves that recall, according to Renaissance interpretations, the love for nature; this has been clearly represented in the deck through a very special use of the seed "heart", in order to make sure to recall fully the leaves of the plant. The etymology of the name originates from the Greek "ỏξύς" (acute; pungent), due to the acidulous taste of the plant and from "ᾅλς-ἁλός" (salt), due to the high quantity of oxalic acid. The back of the deck, in particular, refers to a violet variety very similar to a four-leaf clover: "oxalis tetraphilla", whose reference is present throughout the deck, as well as on the box.
