The use of raffia strands is common with florists, crafters, and milliners. It attracts so many because it is a natural fibre. Besides, it is easy to dye and available in a number of colours.
Raffia is soft and durable, and since it does not shrink with moisture, it is perfect for outdoor use. Pack a gift, tie a bow, make a hat, or put your raffia to use in various other ways.
