Mafana Bags

Mafana Bags

Mafana Bags are sturdy tote or project bags in fashionable styles and colours, many have an additional drawstring top to keep your project covered. They vary in size from a handy carry a couple of skeins on the go to a 'stash' bag. Mafana pronounced 'ma-fan-a' with the accent on 'mA' means 'Hot' in Malagasy (the language of Madagascar) and Mafana will certainly be hot! Mafana reinvest in the local community producing our goods. If a raffia weaving loom is needed, they buy it. If raw materials are needed, they fund them. This approach allows the craftsman of Madagascar to help themselves develop trade in a fair and equitable manner. Mafana pays fair prices to its producers and works directly with them to improve quality and 'western' desirability. Whilst handicrafts cannot yet be accredited under the Fair Trade system Mafana works to the IFAT '10 principles to Fair Trade, a proportion of Mafana's profits are donated directly to Charity projects in Madagascar. Already the founders have provided funds to refurbish two public primary schools in rural areas and the project list is growing! By buying Mafana products you are directly contributing to both humanitarian and environmental projects in Madagascar, one of the poorest countries in the world. Mafana only source products that are made from sustainable raw materials such as raffia, sisal, leather and zebu horn, a by-product of meat production.
