Shopping 6 The island’s reputation as a shopping paradise is enhanced by the diversity and quality of shopping opportunities. Mauritius has an enviable reputation for textiles production, namely for pull-overs and knitwear. Leading brands of shirts, trousers, suits, dresses, suits for women, shorts or swimwear are sold at unbeatable prices. Basketwork, embroidery, pottery, cut stones and recycled glass are very much in demand. Those who love cooking will be able to take back fruit jellies, chillies, and other types of spices and pickles – delicious bits of raw vegetables soaked in oil, spices and chilly. Do not forget to buy some vanilla tea or rum. Only accredited shops are allowed to sell duty-free goods to tourists. Coffret des Iles, on the other hand, offers a wide range of gift-parcels ready to offer, home delivered in France, England and Germany within 72 hours. Your Coffret des Iles can also be purchased in most of the hotel’s shops or with your Tour Operator’s local representative.
