Peach Blossom

Peach Blossom

At the foot of the French Alps, the colors and scents of peach orchards and vineyards delight the senses. The flowers of the peach tree, with pink petals, are all sweetness and femininity; tender, velvety and sweet.


'Manon', 'Lucía', 'Princess',' Lady of the Spring "... In Provence, the names of the peach trees pay tribute to the beauty of young women in the first days of spring.

 

For the new collection scented 'peach flowers', L'OCCITANE draws on the tradition of the Provençal "boutis' for a unique decoration in limited edition. A tradition of Provence: the boutis, is the art of decoration in relief. The 'boutis' is a meticulous art, typical of Provençal textiles.

 

Since the Middle Ages experienced embroiderers work with their hands skillfully decorating fabrics inspired by colors and landscapes of the region. Then, create branches and garlands of flowers with a technique known as 'méchage', giving a very sharp relief that will adorn clothing and traditional costumes. These fine fabrics are exported to all over the world to make 'boutis' a reference to the skill of Provence.
