Our Moroccan Raffia Babouches are made from Raffia grass that is grown in Madagascar and then imported to the seaside town of Essaouira on the west coast of Morocco. Local women in Essaouira treat and dye the Raffia grasses before weaving them into our shoes.
Moroccans believe that the natural fibers in the Raffia, along with the woven construction, allows for the skin to breathe and results in healthier skin. We source the leather soles of the shoes from Fez, an ancient city in Morocco long-renowned for their leather tanning.
