About

Hello and welcome!

Thanks for dropping by. I am so excited to introduce Soleil Bazaar, a range of carefully and beautifully hand-crafted beach accessories by artisans from Mauritius and the Mascarenes Islands (including Madagascar, Rodrigues and Reunion). 

I was born and raised on the tropical island of Mauritius and grew up immersed in the island's colourful traditions, diverse cultures and artisanal crafts. This eclectic lifestyle inspired me to launch Soleil Bazaar - my way of sharing the craft of local artisans with the world. 

Soleil Bazaar is a collection of beach baskets and clutches handmade using indigenous techniques passed down through generations of artisans. All products have been created using the best quality of locally sourced material (natural straw from different types of palm trees) that have been hand-woven and hand-painted, making each piece from the range 'unique'. Although the products from the Soleil Bazaar collection have been created using traditional practices, they have been designed to suit the demand of today's modern customers. Ideal for beach holidays, to wear pool-side or whilst out and about in the city, these baskets and clutches will be sure to brighten any outfit.

More than just a beach accessories brand, we like to think of Soleil Bazaar as a lifestyle brand created to celebrate the artisans of Mauritius and the islands of the Indian Ocean.

We may be a small brand but we have a big heart. Therefore, 10% from each sale goes to charities based in Mauritius. 

Please do have a browse, feel free to get in touch if you have any questions and happy shopping! 

 

Love,

  Aurélie
