How is it made?
Banana riddle and raffia is cut into strips and dried out into the sun. The raffia is dyed using natural pigments from plants and vegetables and left out to dry again. The ladies then bunch the banana riddle and wrap raffia around them to create these stunning one-of-a-kind designs.
Please note as these are handmade and there will be slight variation in the design. If you choose to buy a bundle we will make sure we match them up so they are both similar.

Love and care: To clean, dust with a dry cloth and air-dry to freshen and release odours. Wipe immediately if stained. If dry cloth is not sufficient to remove marks, use a damp cloth to spot clean and ensure to air-dry them completely. The mats are 100% natural and if they are left wet or damp they will decompose. Do not store in a moist environment. We highly discourage for you to run these under the tap and avoid all contact with water if possible.
