THE STORY OF RAFF
Raff was conceptualised and founded by Rashi Agarwal Favier and Maurits Favier, to offer a range of accessories that are simple, contemporary and innovative. Rashi who graduated from London College of Fashion fell in love with European fashion. After working with a leading leather brand for two years, she decided to start her own brand with partner, Maurits. Being from The Netherlands, he shared the same idea about fashion and brings a business sense to the brand.
Raff takes pride in promoting traditional craft and the fashion revolution movement. All products are ethically produced using locally sourced raw materials. We are a sustainable brand that believes in making premium quality products, providing an honest treatment of our employees, and keeping our environmental impact at a minimal. We pay our artisans fair wages and support fair trade.
Raff handbags are made with genuine vegetable tanned buff leather without the use of chemicals. This time-consuming process is environmentally friendly and harmless to the skin. Slight imperfections and wrinkles are proof of the natural and naked leather, devoid of any chemicals.
The smooth finish on the bag improves with use and age. Extended usage gives the patina a soft shine, making every bag unique and characteristic. Care for your Raff bag and it will last you a long time.
Raff bags are fully hand-stitched using saddle stitching techniques. This pain staking and traditional construction method offers unmatched strength allowing it to last longer than normal machine stitching. The waxed linen thread adds additional strength to the stitching.
Our collection is inspired from the Bauhaus design movement’s works. The use of clean lines, structural shapes and design sensibilities speak to us immensely and is very true to our design aesthetic.
Raff jewellery is made from reclaimed natural coloured wood and finished with coconut oil, accents of lacquered brass, and aluminium. We aim to incorporate nature with design to make contemporary unique pieces. Each piece has a unique wood grain and differ slightly from one another.
