Fashionable Raffia Handbag, Clutch, Tote Bag For Summer

The raffia handbag carries history within its weaves. Because weaving is a basic feature of cultures, it bears witness to the changes while it remains within its overlapping fibers. Weaving in general is both a necessity and an expression of art. Materials vary depending on location but plant fibers are the general form used.

Raffia is basically a by-product of agriculture which makes up about fifty percent of a crop's harvest. Raffia has proven to be quite durable as it is used for thatch, packaging, basketry, horse collars, ropes, hats and the recently revived straw bale construction.

Raffia handbags are kin of baskets. In fact, these handbags haven't changed very much. They're made with the basic technique of weaving that's already at its peak. Like basket-weaving, raffia handbags are woven like textiles but with less tension due to the straw's low flexibility.

It's a centuries-old technology that never fails to serve well and is still quite famous with the help of designers. They have reintroduced the raffia handbag into the fashion industry and racks are once again beaming with a cultural pride.

The Madagascar is one of the birthplaces of these bags. Weaving and raffia material have existed since before the Spanish era. The Madagascar variety of raffia straw handbags includes different purposes. The smallest of this array are purses designed for coins. Some of these coin purses are composed of two open mouthed pieces, the other slightly larger to fit perfectly around its partner for a secure hold.

Some are simply closed off with a zip top. Another version of this handbag is a tube specifically designed for long pieces such as fans and pens. The simplest of raffia handbags still have the basket image with an open top, short handles and a relatively medium size.

Many local handbags are made only for export throughout the world. They are excellent in quality and with care are high in durability. They require simple maintenance by patting with a (water only) damp towel and nothing else.

Today, varying styles and materials are mixed with the handbags which creates a multitude of available products. Designers now mix raffia straw handbags with different materials such as leather for straps, brass buckles, and sequin patterns. The weaving pattern itself can be adjusted in order to produce a different design. Some are fabulous with the simple mix of contrasting colors.
