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.

We are very concerned about the environmental and sustainable impact of our productions and we take social responsibility very seriously as a company. We are constantly researching and working on new products, replacing leather with new materials and by using a 90% vegetable dye. The most successful colour in the range is the “Tea” colour which is made from real tea and makes a wonderful natural beige.
