1. What is raffia?
Raffia comes from the Raffia Palm Tree. The fibers are taken from the raffia leaves which is then turned into a ribbon like material. The material is almost like paper so it’s extremely like weight. That is one of the best features when it comes to earrings! We can’t help but have summer on our minds and these earrings could not be more perfect for summer days and summer vacays!
2. How to Wear It
A lot of raffia earrings are big and colorful so have fun with this one! Especially if you are on a trip somewhere tropical. The ivory colors work great with all white looks or chambray tops. And the colorful ones look great with florals and even neutrals to add a pop of color. Coral and turquoise are the perfect complement for black and are always classic summer colors! These earrings work well with many types of necklaces and bracelets.
3. How to Travel With It
This is a great summer material because of the fun colors! These are great for a tropical beach vacation. Pack them nice and flat in some tissue paper. If you have some foam, wrap them up in that too. Then stick them in your traveling jewelry pouch or even just a ziploc bag! Wrap them up and you’re good to go!
