The Raffia & Straw Look

Many people think that raffia and straw are the same thing. Although both raffia and straw can sometimes look similar at first glance, they're quite different. Straw is an agricultural byproduct that stems from the stalks of grain crops. And raffia stems from raffia palm leaves. Raffia also has a natural resin in the fiber giving it more longevity and flexibility. Raffia also has a natural resistance to water, but the fiber itself is not considered waterproof. If soaked, it has the potential to lose a considerable amount of body. Caring for your raffia is simple but crucial to ensure its longevity. Straw is naturally resistant to water (but not fully waterproof), raffia straw is a great choice if you're headed to the beach.

Raffia and straw are two of those pieces that people usually tend to pickup or go to or pull out only when they are going on holiday. Raffia and straw are not practical pieces that you would really want to wear everyday. When shopping for raffia and straw you can find raffia and straw pieces in different colors, different styles, different shapes, with or without prints, embroidered, or without embroidery, colorful, neutral and so on. My point is that with raffia and straw you have many options to choose from.
