Certified Organic Raffia
Raffia palms thrive in Madagascar and east Africa, reaching heights of more than 45 feet. Their leaves are the longest in the plant kingdom, growing up to 75 inches. As the palm grows, branches produce seed and then drop from the tree for harvesting. The branch fiber, mature seeds and fronds have many uses, but it is the membrane of the underside of each frond that is carefully peeled off and dried to create the beautiful woven raffia hats that are all handmade. Raffia palms are hardy and prolific in their natural habitat, shedding their leaves naturally, they have been recognized as a renewable resource for products that have an especially low impact on the environment.
The Boater shape is classic, one of the most complimentary styles for all faces. The hat is great for travel, roll it up and it throw it into your tote bag.
