ABOUT US


 

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO...

Founded in our hometown of Byron Bay,
sustainability and quality in design have always been at the heart of who we are at Raffia Society.
Our commitment to the slow fashion movement has steered us away from the status quo of mass-produced pieces that have no personality and lead us down the path to masterfully handmade footwear with soul.

 

 

 

 Each pair of shoes is handcrafted by our artisans, who we engage with on a fair trade basis. We source our materials locally in as-needed quantities only. This ensures minimal wastage and promotes sustainability in our boutique production.
Our slides stand out from the rest – with a thick rubber sole and leather lining underfoot. All shoes at Raffia Society have been tested rigorously and are designed to last years, not seasons...
