What is raffia grass

lclear(8)June 8, 2005

I'd like to try my hand at weaving baskets, and some instructions call for raffia grass. Does anyone know if I can just use some dry grass blades for this, like maiden grass?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Raffia is the fibrous inner covering of the leaves of the Raphia Palm, from Madagascar.
