These gorgeous raffia bags are hand woven in madagascar using traditional crochet & weaving methods. The craftswomen who create them are paid a sustainable income for their beautiful handiwork. Raffia is a sustainably harvested plant based fibre from the native madagascan raffia tree. The palms grow in tropical rainforest & need to be harvested regularly to allow other plants & animals to thrive. The palm has a short trunk & leaves that grow up to 18 metres long. Once treated the fibre is soft, pliable, strong & biodegradable.
This bag is perfect as a market bag, a beach tote or as an overnight bag. Woven with a judith stitch & contrasting plait to adjust the bag. Internal raffia pocket.
