Editors Notes:

Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world. Tanora commits to an on-going effort to make sure that employees in their workshop in Madagascar are well-respected, fairly paid and over the age of 18. They actively encourage fairtrade work conditions in an effort to help the people of Madagascar find their own financial independence.

The weaving and crocheting of raffia is part of the traditional Madagascan handicraft culture. These ancestral techniques utilising traditional looms have become increasingly rare in the face of globalisation, as it has become cheaper to outsource and mass-produce products through modern machinery. An integral part of their mission is to maintain the human side and artistry of a craft native to Madagascar.

Raffia is one of the most sustainable materials in the fashion and homeware industry. The cultivation of raffia involves only the careful hand-pruning (rather than cutting) of the raffia palm, that way our footprint on the environment remains as minimal as possible. Whatever goes into our products is obtained responsibly and with a conscience. The raffia is pruned at a minimum of 1.2 metres, ensuring that harvesting is non-disruptive and that the health of the palm is preserved.

Since 2020 for each item sold, 10 trees will be planted ( The Eden Reforestation project)
