MAROU

Marou Faiseurs de Chocolat is based in Saigon and is the first single origin gourmet bean-to-bar chocolate to come out of Vietnam. I love what Rice Creative done with the packaging. The patterns are inspired by the lovely ceremonial papers produced by printers in Cho Lon, the old Chinese quarter of Saigon. A local printing shop was commissioned to use traditional silk-screen printing to hand-print the design in antique gold on each wrapper.

But my favourite part is how the colour of each chocolate variety was inspired by the cacao bean itself. The geographic location of the farm and its soil determines the characteristics of the cacao bean and the flavour of the chocolate itself.
