natural raffia platter
indigo africa partners with artisans in Rwanda who make handwoven platters and baskets using locally sourced raffia: a straw-like fiber that can be stripped from the inside of palm tree leaves. the fibers are found only in a special species of palm tree that grows abundantly across sub-Saharan Africa. the artisans weave the raffia fibers using a needle and thread, creating a range of shapes, designs, and products that look beautiful in natural raffia tones or when hand-dyed.
