The Malagasy craftsman, rich with his multicultural and multiracial origins, has taken advantage of his exceptional environment and the wealth of rare and original natural materials to create objects with unique refinement.
The “raphia-knitted” technique applied to the Raphia fibers is an essential component of this both diverse and complex craftmanship.
The different points, whether simple or more advanced, are all handmade. It is a slow and precise work requiring great dexterity and know-how passed down for several generations.
The tension of the fiber, the realization of the point as well as its regularity give its shape and homogeneity to the hat or the bag. The result is almost unique pieces that may require several days of work.
A complete collection like ours is the result of the combined work of a large number of people: the design creation in France, as well at the product making by our partner workshops in Madagascar
