What is ramie fabric?

Ramie is a natural fiber, similar to linen, and comes from the ramie plant in the nettle family. It's also known as grass linen or grasscloth. With a texture reminiscent of flax, jute, or hemp under the microscope, ramie stands out for its strength—nearly six times stronger than cotton and twice as strong as flax. Ramie fabric is resistant to mildew, bacteria, and other microorganisms, and doesn't get damaged by light, rot, or insects.

What are the benefits of ramie fabric?

Ramie fabric is known for its durability, breathability, and luxurious texture that gets even better as it ages. Ramie keeps its shape, absorbs moisture, and becomes softer with each wash. This fabric is naturally stain-resistant, easy to clean, and dries quickly. It doesn't shrink, so it stays looking great after every wash and wear. Plus, ramie is eco-friendly, made from plant-based materials and is completely biodegradable.
