Ramie, native to China, is a linen-like fibre made from nettles and is classified as a cellulose fiber, just like cotton, linen and rayon.
Ramie is sometimes mistaken for linen. It breathes well, making it especially comfortable for warm and humid summers.
It is easy care, increases in strength when wet, and does not shrink or lose its shape. It dries quickly and like linen becomes smoother and more lustrous with repeated washing.
