We use raffia fiber from palm tree leaves in Madagascar. It is an environmentally-friendly material that regenerates after being extracted. Our “raffia only” accessories are 100% vegan and our suppliers use dying techniques that respect their health and safety.
The locally purchased leather comes from the so famous Malagasy zebu – a type of bovid that remains a key player within Malagasy economy and daily life, and it is not among threatened species. We make sure that our zebu leather is vegetable tanned.
As you may guess, the horn comes from the zebu. It is a raw material that requires a traditional technique to cut, polish, design and dye if necessary. The natural colors of the zebu horn vary but we can safely say they include brown, black, grey and sometimes nude / yellow.
