In 2010, high in the mountains of the Klein Karoo's Koo Valley, the Provenance skin and body care range was born. Surrounded by the valley's stark beauty, hectares of fragrant lavender and rose geranium plants, grown from our home on Provenance Farm, served as the natural source of our range. Distilled into essential oils, the plants were then carefully crafted into the products that we still hand-make today from our shop in the seaside town of Hermanus.
The Provenance shop is situated on the main road in the heart of Hermanus and has become a popular stop-off destination for tourists and locals alike. The first question that most new-comers ask as they step through our door is "What is that lovely smell?". The answer to which is fragrant essential oils such as lavender, rose geranium and lemongrass, drifting through from the back room, where all of our products are hand-made daily.
Although well known for our therapeutic massage balms and pure olive oil soaps and exfoliators there are a host of olfactory delights to explore such as; our extensive range of lotions, body butters, shampoos and conditioners; anti-aging facial products carefully formulated for healthy, glowing skin; bath bombs and salts; reed diffusers, room fresheners and candles to name but a few.
Our shop is also packed full of locally and internationally sourced quality home goods and leisure wear such as; our large selection of Mungo flat weave towels, throws, dish towels, linen and cotton dressing gowns; as well as Karu sleepwear and bed covers and Bambam baby items. The African Jacquard range of throws are unique and beautiful, woven in pure linen and cotton in natural, earthy colours.
So the next time you're in town pop by, we're sure to have something to delight the senses.
