Cruise 2009

Extracting from nitro:licious fabulous blog, I wanted to feature the upcoming raffia Galliera for Cruise 2009. Apparently, it is a by-deposit only bag and my SA has informed that they have begun taking orders. We haven't even seen the Fall Collection yet! It is roughly around $2400 so whip out the needed 50% down. "Raffia fibres have many uses, especially in the area of textiles and in construction. In their local environments, they are used for ropes, sticks, supporting beams and various roof coverings are made out of its fibrous branches and leaves. The membrane on the underside of each individual frond leaf is taken off to create a long thin fibre which can be dyed and woven as a textile into products ranging from hats to shoes to decorative mats. Plain raffia fibres are exported and used as garden ties or as a "natural" string in many countries. Especially when one wishes to graft trees, raffia is used to hold plant parts together as this natural rope has many benefits for this purpose." (From Wikipedia). I wonder how long this organic material will last? LVoe it though!
