Tanora is much more than buying and reselling in Australia. All our products are handcrafted from scratch in our workshop in Madagascar. We commit to a direct effort in keeping all aspects of production in Madagascar, not only out of fairness but with respect to customs and laws.
The weaving and crocheting of raffia is part of the traditional Madagascan handicraft culture. These ancestral techniques utilising traditional looms have become increasingly rare in the face of globalisation, as it has become cheaper to outsource and mass-produce products through modern machinery. An integral part of our mission is to maintain the human side and artistry of a craft native to Madagascar.
