The Joseph M. Stern Co. imports most of the raffia that’s available in the United States. We are the go-to supplier for individual waterfoul hunters and hobbyists everywhere.

Our raffia fiber is soft, pliable, strong, durable, easy to dye and biodegradable making it an excellent material for weaving baskets, hats, mats and rugs. A very popular use for it is for hunters to make blinds for camouflage. It is also widely used for agricultural purposes to tie vegetables, plants in vineyards, flowers and floral arrangements. Crafters use the raffia fiber for making doll hair, ribbons, Hawaiian skirts (hula skirts), table skirts and much more. In addition raffia is very popular in the packaging industry and can be used as filler. Raffia is often used as a decorative item for tying a little bow around oil, jam, vinegar, wine bottles, soaps, candles and boxes.
