Bella Lucce's founder traveled more than 60,000 miles during more than twenty plane rides and dozens of hours rambling down rutted, red clay roads in search of inspiration for this collection, zigzagging across Africa to unearth a myriad of indigenous beauty secrets.  Tucked inside a chic cotton bag, you'll find wee-sized versions of our five most popular offerings from the African Adventures Collection, each designed to take you for a walk on the wild side of beauty. Ditch those tired hotel amenities and replace them with our luxurious handmade soap, shampoo, conditioner, body scrub and creme.

A celebration of the richness of indigenous cultures, this product range incorporates a stunning array of natural oils, fruits and extracts rarely seen in the American cosmetics market. Journey with us through Africa and discover handmade mudcloth bags from Mali. Baobab and Yangu Seed oils from Kenya. Nilotica shea butter from Uganda and Rooibos extract from South Africa.  Whether you're heading out on safari, backpacking through the mountains or jet-setting in New York,  these petite wonders yield enough product to last a week or more.

The story of our handmade bogolan cosmetic bags:

Bogolan (also called mudcloth) is the quintessential West African textile. The word “bogolan” means “made from mud” in Bambara, the local language of Mali. The bogolan technique of dyeing and printing cotton is entirely organic.  Traditionally, the textile is made using narrow strips of cotton cloth woven on looms in the villages. This fabric is first soaked in a dye bath made from mashed and boiled leaves or bark to infuse the cloth with either a red or yellow hue.  Once dyed, the fabric is treated with mud collected from the Niger River, applied freehand in multiple layers with the help of a toothbrush. The cloth is dried in the sun, then washed in the river and laid to dry on its banks, where the oxides that remain from the mud intensify to create a permanent pattern.

Personifying the spirit of "handmade", this bag was handsewn in Djenne, Mali of handpainted cloth exclusively for Bella Luccè. The women's cooperative responsible for creating your bag provides employment for local women and profits from their export are kept in the local community, providing literacy training and medical services for native Malians.
