We also have a large selection of raffia storage products. One of our very first products was a raffia basket, and we are huge fans of this great, natural material.
Raffia fibers come from palm fronds – and all of our raffia comes from Madagascar. The Raffia products are all handmade, and our production supports more than 300 families on the Red Island. As an example it takes 4 people up to 38 hours to make a set of our popular storage houses…
Raffia varies in color from nature, and this variation is reflected in the coloring as well. This means two baskets are never quite alike – this is part of the product’s charm.
We dye the raffia with Basic Dye, which is free from AZO.
There are only a few precautions you should take to get the most out of your raffia products:
- The color of the raffia products might rub off if exposed to water
- If exposed to direct sunlight, the colors will fade over time
