Borgo de’Pazzi Rafia shopper

Size of large bag is about 56 x 32 cm
Size of small bag is about 26 x 21 cm

250 grams of Borgo de’Pazzi Rafia;
Crochet hook no 8;
Leather for handles: 2 pieces of 40 cm x 1.5 cm and 4 pieces of 5 x 1.5 cm. Use a strip of saddle leather for this (or use a belt).

The skein of Rafia consists of loose fiber strands that should be attached one by one while crocheting.
Borgo de’Pazzi Rafia is a natural fiber, and since no two fiber strands are the same, you can crochet 2 fiber strands together if they are very thin.

Have fun with your shopper.

Borgo de’Pazzi Rafia is natural raffia which comes from Madagascar. For more information visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILkb5_sW6PY&t=94s
