When shopping in Mauritius, t-shirts are by far, the absolute favourite buy. Never before have Ralph Lauren clothes and accessories been so affordable! And No, they are not all fake or counterfeited products. Mauritius is one of the largest producers of these great designer t-shirts and because the factories produce them locally, they are much cheaper.
The next time you head down to your local department store, check the country of origin of Ralph Lauren polo shirts, Calvin Klein t-shirts and Hugo Boss shirts. Chances are they are made in Mauritius!
During the last couple of years, the ever-increasing demand for Ralph Lauren quality products has resulted in a massive proliferation of retail shops, mostly factory outlets. You will find them almost everywhere, especially in the very touristy areas of the North – Grand Baie and Arsenal, Port Louis, Curepipe and Floréal.
Shop around first to have a feel of the going price and, to ensure that you are getting the real thing, check the packaging, the logo. Beware, because counterfeit t-shirts are also being sold all over the island. Always keep the receipt as proof of purchase for return or exchange.
