So, what is ramie?

Ramie is a natural fiber derived from the stalks of the Boehmeria nivea plant, a member of the nettle family. This versatile material has been used for centuries in Asia for making textiles, paper, and even fishing nets. It is similar to linen in texture and appearance, with a lustrous sheen and excellent absorbency, but is also more durable and resistant to wrinkling. Ramie is known for its breathability and moisture-wicking properties, making it a popular choice for summer clothing. It is also environmentally friendly, as the plant requires minimal water and pesticides to grow, making it a sustainable alternative to synthetic fibers.
