The LAFIKE rug is a gorgeous statement piece that is also easy to integrate in most decor styles thanks to its neutral tones. The hero of a modern and sustainable home.
In contrast with jute rug which is prone to shedding of loose fiber, raffia rugs, thanks to their natural wax, are soft underfoot and durable. A raffia rug can easily last decades with a 20 minutes yearly maintenance.
This timeless circular rug has been handwoven using sustainably pruned raffia from the region Mahajanga, Madagascar. That is where the highest grade of raffia originate from. This place is special to us as it is where TANORA's founders grew up and where our reforestation partner, Eden, operates.
LAFIKE can be used indoor or in a covered outdoor space.
Useful tips: Double the life span of the rug by flipping it.
