These gorgeous clutch bags are sustainably made by artisans in Madagascar. Using the leaves from the Raffia Palm trees harvested in the central rainforests. These leaves need harvesting to allow other flora and fauna to grow. The fibres once harvested are strong yet soft and pliable. The process is eco friendly and the bags are all biodegradable. The weaving is done by established weaving techniques used for centuries to make baskets and hats, and it provides local and sustainable income for the women artisans. There is nothing mass produced here! And the bags are both modern and "chic".
The bags have lovely pom poms with just a hint of sparkle and pretty beaded hand twisted tassels. These bags are cotton lined and have a zip fastening.
