Ethical, Eco-friendly, Sustainable.

Raffia is native to Madagascar and a sustainable resource to the country. Collectors go deep in the island to harvest the raffia fibre of the raffia palm tree, which grows in tropical regions of Madagascar. Each palm branch is made of nearly 100 leaflets, which are sustainably removed from the palms yielding long continuous fibres that are then dried before using.

Raffia strands have a natural resin, making them not only soft and smooth but just as resilient and strong. 

With a population of over 28 million citizens, Madagascar’s raffia industry employs over 2 million.
