What is raffia?

Raffia is fibre obtained from the fronds of raffia palms (raphia farinfera) which occupy tropical regions including Africa, South America and especially, Madagascar.

The long strips of raffia fibre are collected from the raffia palm leaf. It is then stripped, dried in the sun, and graded according to colour, texture, length and width.

-Raffia is strong, durable, malleable, can be dyed, and is biodegradable. 

-Raffia contains a natural resin making it semi-waterproof and resilient.
