A raffia basket in a traditional shape with a long handle, small inside pocket and pinstripe pattern. Handmade in Madagascar from start to finish.

Made from the native raffia palm tree that grows in the Madagascan rainforest. The raffia strips are taken from branches that have been removed from the tree to allow it to keep growing. The raffia is dried, cut into strips, hand dyed and then left to dry in the sunshine. It is then woven into panels on a loom before being sewn together to make the basket shape. Leather handles are then attached. A beautifully made basket made in a sustainable and traditional way.  

If basket gets wet allow to dry thoroughly. colour may run in heavy British downpours!
