Stunning Madaraff raffia baskets for shopping, beach, holidays and work, handmade on the beautiful island of Madagascar by family-run co-operatives working from home and small artisan units. We source these baskets from Madaraff, a family business founded in 2004, who regularly visit their suppliers. The products are fairly traded and made from raffia, a renewable and sustainable raw material, which is incredibly strong and hard-wearing. Any leather used in manufacture is a by-product of the meat industry. Clean, safe working conditions are provided for employees and no young children are used to manufacture the baskets. A truly ethical gift that will provide years of pleasure!
