Raffia Bags

 

In Morocco, we are collaborating with a number of skilled artisan women to produce our raffia bags. These women are practicing a trade that is a symbol of their heritage. Instead of working with a factory, the women are hired individually. Most of them spend their days taking care of their children and produce raffia bags from the comfort of their own home. 

It is especially important now, during times where tourism all over the world is suffering, to support those who are feeling the decline in tourism first-hand. That's why we have decided to add a tipping feature to our online shop, which allows our customers to send a tip directly to the women who manufacture the product.

Improvement opportunity

For this product, our supply chain is not 100% transparent. We have met our contact, who is a woman living in Marrakech, in person. We do not, however, know the middleman between our contact and the manufacturers. We know what percentage of the production cost goes to our contact, but we do not know how much the manufacturers are being paid. We also cannot trace the material supplier. These are areas of improvement and we are currently working towards answering all the unanswered questions.
