Raffia is a paramount material in your bonsai practice. It allows you to accomplish major design work with countless species. At Mirai, we constantly search for and test out the highest quality raffia on our trees. Our raffia comes directly from the source - the widest, longest, and most consistent raffia available on the market. Unlike electrical tape and horse wrap, this raffia encourages and enables oxygen exchange so the tree’s vascular system can continue functioning as usual, while still providing the compression and protection necessary to facilitate those big design moves.
