Natural Raffia



The summertime ballet flat. Meticulously handwoven in natural raffia, the JESSIE is equal parts effortless and timeless with its almond toe detailing and low-profile construction. Both dressy and functional, we love this style with jeans and a blazer or baggy trousers.

Raffia is a natural fiber derived from palm trees, which is lightweight, durable, and eco-friendly. Please note that this raffia is woven by hand so there may be slight imperfections.

  • 100% Natural Raffia.
  • Unlined and flexible as a perfect ballet should be.
  • 0.25" rubber heel and sueded leather sole
  • In an effort to be less wasteful and keep your shoes looking good, we applied a thin film to the sole. Please remove and recycle prior to making these yours. If you plan to return, please ensure film is intact.

Please note this style is running big, please half size down for your optimal fit.

  • Recommend half size down
  • Slip-on
  • GISELLE is the last used for this flat. Learn more about lasts here.

Our raffia shoes are handwoven by a community of women in Spain. Raffia is a natural fiber derived from palm trees, which is lightweight, durable, and eco-friendly. We strongly recommend not letting your shoes get wet as they are highly water absorbent. Raffia naturally has slight stretch, and will form to your foot.

To clean, use a soft, dry cloth to remove dirt. If there is a stray row of raffia sticking out of the shoe, please use sharp scissors and simply snip in place. If your raffia shoes become wet, stuff them with tissue paper and leave them to dry naturally away from any direct heat or sunlight. Store your clean shoes in the original box making sure to stuff them with tissue paper or a shoe tree to keep their shape. We recommend cleaning periodically or as needed to keep your FRĒDAs looking brand new.
