Here at Paper Mart, we are excited to share our collection of 96+ styles and colors of raffia. Raffia ribbon is made from strips of the raffia palm tree, which only grows in the East-African country of Madagascar. This strong, grass-like material is ideal for gift packaging, decoration, or other crafting applications. It can be dyed a variety of colors and looks great when paired with other varieties of natural ribbon, such as jute. If you’re looking for a specific color of raffia, our color index (located at the top of the page) makes it easy to narrow down your search options.

Raffia ribbon works great for:

  • Basket making
  • Ribbon or gift packaging
  • Making holiday wreaths
  • Putting finishing touches on commercial food packaging
  • Decorating for rustic-themed weddings or birthday parties
  • Outdoor use because of its strength and durability

Colored Pearlized Raffia Ribbon

This ribbon is a synthetic product that has been designed to look and function much like real raffia. Unlike the natural fibers, it offers a shimmery finish that adds a touch of sparkle to your project. Try mixing it with natural raffia to form an interesting mix of textures and colors.

The 100-yard spools are ¼ of an inch in width. However, they can be pulled apart to form a wider ribbon for a variety of applications. With a selection of 29+ different colors, you’ll be sure to find the raffia ribbon you need.
