A Look At Some Raffia Pieces & Straw Pieces

Raffia is made from the leaves of a palm tree. Raffia is perfect for weaving baskets, mats, rugs, hats, sandals, bags, belts and even possibly earrings. Raffia is easy to dye. Raffia is also biodegradable. Some people confuse raffia with straw, but they are not the same. Raffia fiber has a natural resin which gives it longevity and makes each strand more malleable which is suitable for various uses. Straw is the dry stalk of cereal plants such as rice, rye, corn, oats & barley. Some straw fashion pieces you might find are straw hats and straw bags which you can also find in raffia. The good thing about both is that they are both natural products and are sustainable.
