Contre-Allée is above all a story of friendship in an exotic setting on the side lane.
After traveling far and wide the Moroccan medinas, Anne & Marouane discover a material not widespread in the textile: raffia.
« Raffia is a very strong textile fiber, derived from a type of palm that grows in marshy environments and along rivers.»
Seduced by its qualities, the two musketeers decided to use this soft and solid material and to imagine a unique shoe, natural and comfortable!
« A day of hand weaving is needed to produce a pair of raffia shoes! »
The added value of our products lies in the handmade production of our Moroccan craftsmen. This know-how provides real traceability and quality and durability of our products. We want, through this collaboration, to enhance this material by creating a soft, original and trendy shoe.

Raffia is a textile fiber, natural and solid, made from palm trees from Madagascar. They are found in marshy environments and along rivers. Seduced by its many qualities, we decided to use this material by imagining a unique, natural and comfortable shoe suitable for women and men.
The added value of our products lies in a hand-sewn artisanal production. This know-how brings traceability, quality and durability to our products. A day of hand weaving is necessary to produce a pair of raffia shoes. Through our brand, we wish to enhance the work of these craftsmen with incomparable expertise.
