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!
