Aidez MODERAPHIA dans son Aventure Humaine - Come along with MODERAPHIA in its Human Journey

MODERAPHIA bags are handcrafted, designed and fabricated in small series. We use only natural materials, mainly raffia, in accordance with fair trade and sustainable development.


  Raffia is beautiful, strong, supple. Endemic Natural resource ensuring the Malagasy people subsistence, it is also an ecological material: the trees does not die following the extraction of the workable fibre.


  Real fair trade shares in an equitable balance the benefits of the use of resources through all the chain of design, craft and supply.  


Real sustainable development allows local people, real owner of local resources and know-how to prosper in their natural and original environment thanks to a labour fostering their accession to Dignity and Autonomy.  


Ethics and Balance: our products are all ours, we only sell and promote our creations. Workers in the workshop are fully part of the decision makers: whether for the wages, the working hours, the product prices and even the menu of the week.

           SHORT HISTORY:


     The company has been created in September 2015 with our own savings. In    2016, 2/3 of the manufactured items have been sold.   Our work is unanimously approved by the customers.  


           THE WORKSHOP:


     The workshop is situated in Antananarivo (Madagascar) whereas MODERAPHIA bags are sold worldwide.


     The workshop is a training center, a workplace but also a living place where each and every employee is fed, and where some find shelter.   

    Operating costs are high: the workers’ number had to be reduced. In a country where 92% of the population already live below the poverty line.

 And in 2017:





      Arrived in France, a MODERAPHIA bag will have costed:  


    - 30% of materials (raffia, leather, lining and accessories)

    - 50% of labour 

    - 20% of conveying  



    5000 euros will be useful for recruiting and training new workers and to extend the workshop.


    We dream of a pick-and-place machine to work the leather.   


    We also need to finance the production of this year’s planned exhibitions.


    If we exceed the objective, we will also be able to pay the costs of the exhibitions: ID D’ART (April 2017),     UNICREA (May 2017), MAISON & OBJETS (September 2017).



     We do want to keep on creating, producing.   


      PLEASE HELP US.     


      THANK YOU.
