About

Boutique resort wear brand based in Mauritius, see the whole range at www.saskia.mu

THE BRAND
Saskia is a boutique Mauritian clothing brand combining unique modern designs and artisanal craftsmanship, inspired by the tropical and carefree Mauritian lifestyle. The resort wear collections are made-up of effortlessly elegant pieces infused with bohemian charm that can easily transition from day to night. The brand has become iconic for its flowing silhouettes, unique feminine details, pastel colour palettes and stunning fabrics.

Designer Saskia Pougnet-Bechard launched her label under the same name in January 2011 to pursue her love for fashion while supporting the local industry. Saskia creations are designed and handmade in Mauritius, in small, thoughtful runs to maintain strong emphasis on producing high quality garments and the exclusivity of the range.
___________

THE DESIGNER
Saskia Pougnet-Bechard is the creative mind behind the self-titled brand, Saskia. Born in Cape Town to a German mother and a Mauritian father, she grew up amongst the tropical Mauritian landscape and very early on showed a passion for arts and crafts and sewing; a craft she learnt from her grandmothers.

Saskia studied Fashion Design and Marketing at Polimoda in Florence, Italy and later worked for iconic luxury Lingerie company La Perla. Her exhilarating life in Italy combined with her extensive work experience provided her with unique skill sets and a wealth of knowledge, which she decided to bring back to her home island of Mauritius.

Upon her return she worked for several production companies with large portfolios of international clients, to gain industrial experience and a better understanding of the Mauritian textile industry. In January 2011, Saskia launched her brand to pursue her desire to create collections of unique, high quality handmade garments whilst also supporting local artisans.
___________

OUR VALUES
Saskia prides itself on being socially and environmentally consciousness, the garments are produced locally to encourage and stimulate the local economy and to revitalizing the declining craft of artisan sewing in Mauritius, due to mass production.

The business is built on values, which we strive to commit to:
Favorable and encouraging work environments for our employees and subcontractors.
No waste policy for production; we try our best to minimise our fabric waste by creating small accessories.
