Designed in Paris, each collection is handmade by women artisans using Raffia from Madagascar as its centre material.
Raffia is a 100% natural fiber made from Raffia palm leaves. This versatile material is produced from the membrane on the underside of each individual frond leaf. The membrane is taken off to create a long thin fiber, which can be dyed and woven as a textile into products. Traditionally used to make mats and baskets this material has been widely used throughout the world in textiles. Sans Arcidet have elevated this material into a line of highly coverable and fashionable creations that celebrate the nature of natural fibers.
A raffia basket, a real fashion accessory
Sans-Arcidet Paris specializes in working with raffia and mixing noble materials that it selects (vegetable leather from France, organic cotton, etc.) to create rich collections of raffia baskets and hats handmade by Malagasy craftswomen.
The brand is defined by its unequalled style resulting from the mixture of cultures, by its constant creativity thanks to its dedicated design office directed by Samuel, and especially by its modernity. This subtle mix makes Sans Arcidet Paris a unique brand of raffia accessories, free from the codes of traditional craftsmanship. Thanks to Sans Arcidet Paris since 2000, raffia has become a must have in fashion accessories.
