L’Occitane Inspired by West African Fabric's

L’OCCITANE has decorated its Shea Butter range with colourful, graphic PATTERNS, inspired by the bogolan cloth – a traditional fabric from West Africa 

Shea Butter Limited Edition in the colours and scents of Africa
A True Story 
For these limited editions, L’OCCITANE drew inspiration from three flowers with subtle scents:
The Desert Rose from Morocco is known for its generous blooms and fruity, zesty aroma, which perfumes the desolate landscape.
Egyptian Hibiscus delights the eyes with its array of different colours, from the purest white to the most passionate red. Its sensual, sunny perfume awakens the senses.
Cocoa flower from the Ivory Coast has a comforting, milky scent with a delicious hint of cacao. 
The colourful design is inspired by bogolan cloth that is worn by men and women alike. This traditional fabric is decorated with patterns specific to each village, showing where it was made. Bogolan cloth is dyed with mud, which is said to give the fabric vital energy.
