Raffia is loved for its suppleness, softness and ability to readily take dye. We love to knit, crochet, weave and craft with natural raffia. Use raffia to make baskets, bags, mats, for floristry and gift wrapping and in garden.
Raffia is a natural fibre sourced from the Raphia species of palms which are native to tropical regions of Africa, particularly Madagascar. These days, Raphia palms are grown more widely including Indonesia and the Philippines.
Raffia is eco friendly being sustainably harvested which not hurt the plant allowing it to continue to grow and produce.
ORA also loves Sasawashi Bamboo and Pineapple yarn which can be used as fascinating alternatives to Raffia.
