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 rainforests & 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.
A fun little bag that's easy to wear slung over your shoulder or cross body. Leather strap & a woven pompom detail. Internal pocket & magnet closure.
