Limaia Paris provides environmentally friendly fashion that supports local artisans.

Our Story of Sustainable Products

Limaia Paris uses raffia, which is considered a sustainable material for several reasons. Firstly, it is a renewable resource, as the raffia palm trees can be harvested for their leaves without killing the tree, and new leaves will grow to replace them. This makes raffia an environmentally friendly alternative to synthetic materials.

Secondly, raffia is biodegradable, meaning that it will break down naturally over time and not contribute to landfill waste. This is in contrast to many synthetic materials that can take hundreds of years to decompose and can have a significant impact on the environment.

Thirdly, the production of raffia products in Madagascar and other parts of Africa is often done using traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations. This means that the artisans who create these products are using sustainable practices that are in harmony with the environment and help to preserve local cultural traditions.
