Welcome to La Mandarine in 2015
La Mandarine is home to a wonderful selection of handmade beachwear. We specialise in hand embroidered, hand printed and hand embellished cotton voile garments to make you look unique and feel fabulous in the sun. Designed in the UK and made in India according to traditional methods, La Mandarine offers a great selection of wearable and flattering beachwear.
We currently sell in some of the most glamorous and prestigious beach boutiques including the iconic Club 55 on Pampelonne beach in St Tropez and the gorgeous Coral Reef Club in Barbados. We are expanding our popular range of printed cotton sarongs and hand made tunics this year (although we generally produce small quantities of each piece) so please keep checking in as we add new stock during the season.
Our unique kaftans and tunics are so cool and comfortable to wear and super low maintenance to look after that they really are a beach holiday essential.
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 carefully chosen 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.
I hope you like them x
