This is the first fashion and design collection of the project. Created by designer/researcher Lucia Cuba (also Director of PROJECT GAMARRA), RAFIA is inspired, designed and made in recycled “Rafia” material (a common element in the Commercial Emporium context).
First launched on November 2009, RAFIA has participated in different events, reaching diverse audiences inside and outside Gamarra, also creating a connection between the visual, aesthetic and the informative principles of the project.
