Raffia will tolerate some rain, but do not let them soak in water. You can gently remove surface dirt by using a clean, dry to moist, soft cloth. If your shoes become very wet, stuff them with tissue paper and leave them to dry naturally away from any direct heat or light.
If you want the softening process of your shoes to go a little faster, wear them inside with socks on your foot, so that the raffia adapts a little more to the shape of the foot.
Raffia is a natural palm, it gets smoother with time and it really does last for a long time. Le Mogador doesn’t want to use the synthetic fiber which is often used instead of raffia. It is for sure softer in the beginning, but doesn’t last as long, and doesn’t “live” in with your feet, like raffia does.
