Artisanal Products of Mauritius
Le Rendez-Vous is not a brand, it is the meeting point of local artists and designers, Marine tells us during the opening of Le Grand Rendez-Vous event in their concept store, where four more Mauritian brands have the opportunity to showcase their unique products until the 5th of June. The event was preceded by an exhibition of Mauritian photographer Gaelle Gonzalez, introducing her new work in overlay photography.
When you are a designer, finding a place to distribute your products on a way that can transmit their heart-made essence is not easy task, especially when you aim to compete with bigger brands. That’s when Marine, creator of Save a Sail, came out with the idea to invite fellow creators into the scene, sharing the space and efforts to make their own brands happen. And oh, did they happen.
Le Rendez-Vous quickly succeeded at becoming the stylish hub where jewellery, crafts, clothes, furniture and art represent the talent of 20 Mauritian entrepreneurs. With its heart-made essence in the air and their unique pieces complementing each other’s space.

The 20th of May the concept shop opened room to four more Mauritian brands:
- La Fabrique Atelier Deco, bringing adorable house-deco in macramé and linen
- The Collective Goods and their wishlist of Mauritian music, reading, short films and paintings
- Naïa with trendy necklaces and bracelets for your days on the beach
- Blue Deer’s unique jewellery pieces and special little gifts

Just on time for Mother’s Day, huh?
What’s beautiful about it, is that by shopping local you directly support small enterprises to grow, to expand their offer and to keep representing the Mauritian talent and products. You are promoting an ethical production that in many occasions is sourced from recycled and natural elements. And if that little dress doesn’t suit you as you wish… The creator is just a phone call away to do the amendments.
