Welcome to La Mandarine Beachwear.

As we move into the Autumn season here in the UK we are busy working on our exciting new range for 2015. For anyone travelling to the sun later this year however we still have lots of choice from our 2014 range of beautiful hand printed and hand embroidered beachwear available here.

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 do business with individuals as opposed to large corporations. As you will see, the fabrics are still produced in a very traditional manner and require a very skilled hand to produce quality work. Hand printing and embroidering also makes our tunics and dresses unique and sets them apart from ‘mass produced’ fashion.

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
