Raffia is a natural straw-like material that is obtained from the Raffia palm tree. Originally from Madagascar. The Raffia palm has the largest leaves of all plants on earth: up to 25 meters long and 3 meters wide. Raffia is the most sustainable type of palm. The palm leaves are harvested manually without causing damage to the plant itself. It is 100% natural and grows tall and strong organically.
You'll notice instantly it's natural look and touch, which is soft. It is durable, strong and can easily be put back into shape. A perfect material for our hats and bags.
Raffia is also naturally a little bit oily, so therefore features natural UV protection and even water resistance. Our Raffia products are crochet and braided for various looks and feel, all by hand! Simply said it's an amazing material!
