Made in Indonesia.
Raffia is made from the raffia palms that are found in Africa, Madagascar but also in parts of Central and South America. Because of the natural resin, raffia is extremely durable. It makes each piece flexible and pliant so beautiful pieces can be created.
Beads are quite easy to maintain. You can clean them with a damped cloth but don’t use any soap. Chemical substances can damage or discolour the beads!
Dust the shells with a fluffy duster.
The best way to clean products made from raffia such as rugs, is to hang them outside in fresh air.
If you stain it, clean it as quickly as possible. Water can remove stains that did not have a chance to seep into the fibres. If you use water on raffia, let it dry in the sun before using it again. If it’s still wet there is a chance it will mould.
Raffia is a natural fibre so do not use harsh chemicals on stains.
