Ramie is a natural fibre that is able to hold its shape, is resistant to wrinkling, and is extremely absorbent. It’s often blended with other fibres like cotton to ensure it’s durable. It’s similar to a lightweight linen, without all the upkeep.
Native to China, ramie fabric is made from nettles, which puts it in the same classification as cotton, linen, and rayon. Its breathability makes it a good choice for warm and humid environments. It's easy to care for and increases in strength when wet while drying quickly. With repeated washing, ramie becomes softer and smoother.
Fun Fact: While ramie has been grown in China for centuries, it may have also been used for wrapping mummies in Egypt! It would’ve been chosen as it’s naturally resistant to bacteria, mould, mildew, light damage, rot, and insect attacks. Amazing!
