MADARAFF is a family business founded by brothers Stuart and Alan along with their wives Aurelie and Emma in 2004. We supply retailers from small boutiques to department stores across the UK and beyond with on trend and beautiful handmade raffia summer hats, bags, baskets and much more produced ethically by our skilled artisans and friends in Madagascar.
But how did it all begin?
In 1992 Stuart first visited Madagascar as a tourist, his appetite wetted by TV documentaries on the breathtaking and diverse flora and fauna to be found there.
He was not to be disappointed, and an affinity with the ‘Red Island’ was born, which has existed until this day. Stuart’s ties with his second home have since grown stronger and stronger, through business and marriage to his Malagasy wife Aurelie.
Stuart had always admired the handicrafts that can be found in Madagascar, and so it was that in 2004 with his brother Alan and aided by his new family in Madagascar, that MADARAFF Ltd was founded.
Working passionately with Aurelie’s Malagasy family, MADARAFF takes great pride in bringing you innovative and beautiful products direct from our talented artisans, guaranteed to be a popular addition to your collection.
Our family business derives great satisfaction from, and is proud of the fact that; by bringing our beautiful and inspired handmade range to you, we are directly supporting and providing livelihoods for family and friends in this country so far away.
Madaraff and Our commitment to you
Misaotra betsaka. (Thank you!)
