Raffia palms grow in the middle of the tropical Madagascan rainforest and actually need to be harvested regularly to allow other fauna and flora to grow. The palm has a short trunk and leaves that may be up to 18m long. Nearly 100 smaller leaves which are cut and torn off in parallel lines compose each of these branches.

Madagascan use the fibres harvested from these trees to traditionally weave baskets and hats. Once treated, the fibre is soft, pliable, strong, durable, easy to dye, non-shrinking when wet, and biodegradable. By creating work for the locals and maintaining traditional Madagascan crochet and weaving production it provides workers with a sustainable income.
