Raffia, high quality, natural craft material in earthy colours, sourced renewably, buy online at Tribe Castlemaine



Loved by gardeners, basket-weavers, florists, designers and crafters - raffia has a multitude of uses!

Made from the dried and shredded leaves of the palmyra palm tree, this high quality raffia (from proud English company Nutscene) is harvested from renewable sources in Madagascar. 

In the garden, raffia is a kind and gentle tie for soft stems and is great for grafting trees. Each hank contains approximately 90 strands of one metre long lengths - great for basket-making. Open the hank, which is tied at one end, and pull out a string as required.

We've selected a range of natural, earthy colours, along with rich ruby red for those festive projects.
