FROM MADAGASCAR WITH LOVE

Raffia is a natural fibre and is commonly used in crafting projects, twines, ropes, shoes, hats and other textiles.

The Fibre itself is created from the underside of the frond leaf. Also known as Raffia Palm, this native to Madagascar possesses large plume-like leaves that are utilised within a variety of industries and is a major part of the south Asian economy.

Raphia farinifera - Palmpedia - Raffia-Palm-Nutscene-Raffia

The tree has been said to harness over 800 uses, with the leaves used in thatching, construction, mats, baskets, fans and hats!

The tree is so important to this area and their ongoing economy that in Cambodia the tree is seen as a national symbol!

Nutscene's Raffia is created from the Palmyra Palm Tree and we have proudly supplied the best quality Raffia for over 25 years! 

First and foremost, Raffia is created from sustainable sources. The Palmyra Palm Tree is part of the Borassus family, which consists of five giant fan palms which are native to the tropical regions of Africa, Asia and New Guinea.
