It is important to La Mandarine that we know the provenance of all our garments so following my recent sampling trip to India I have uploaded some video of our suppliers in Jaipur at work (click my Blog, left or at the top of the page). We work with individuals as opposed to large corporations. Our fabrics are still produced in a very traditional manner and require a very skilled hand to produce quality work. Hand printing and embroidering is what makes our tunics and dresses unique.

The photos and the clip in the motorised rickshaw or ‘tuk tuk’ show the fun of getting about in Jaipur with all modes of transport available – from elephant to traditional bicycle rickshaw.

I hope you like it x
