Wortels Lexus is the combination of two words originating from Dutch and Latin respectively. Wortels is a Dutch word meaning “Roots”, whereas Lexus is a Latin word meaning “Law” and “Wortels Lexus” means the Roots of Law. The Dutch , after the Arabs in the 12th Century, well before the French and the British visited the island -state which stands on what was once a land bridge between Asia and Africa called the Mascarene Archipelago. It would appear, though it’s written nowhere, that in late 16th century a ship named “Wortels Lexus” with the inscription “DUTCH 1593” floated on the coastal regions of Mauritius and the sailors thereof discovered our famous bird called the “DODO”. This firm is named after that ship.
