To share the Mauritius we love, Lily and Emmanuel Tsang Mang Kin,
created a collection of quality T-shirts with evocative designs, showcasing
the beauty of our island under the brand name of Citadel, in 1983.
These Citadel T-shirts were printed in our garage in Quatre Bornes and
distributed to souvenir shops. It was an immediate success with the V.I.Ps,
Visitors on holidays or on business, Islanders of the I.O. and Patriots.
To day Citadel has a collection of t-shirts, polo shirts, tops, dresses,
and other casual garments, decorated with prints, foil transfer, embroidery,
appliqués and strass or sequins, for the whole family at friendly prices
In order to guarantee the excellent quality of the one million garments made annually,
Citadel controls the total production chain, by doing everything in house,
including cutting, sewing, printing and Embroidery.
Citadel has built up a dedicated and experienced team of 150 professionals
who ensure that every garment is made to our uncompromising quality
using the best equipment and software.
Our Art and Design studio with a team of fashion designers and graphic artists
create models with designs contextualized to the specificity of our V.I.P's market.
We have a dream that one day, Mauritius will be known as
Friendly Mauritius - The best Island in the World,
Not only to the privileged few, but for the whole nation.
