FABRIC COMPOSITION :
50 % Ramie and 50 % Linen
FABRIC ORIGIN :
Our Ramie Linen is locally sourced in Cape Town, South Africa . Ramie is made from the stalks of the plant called Chinese Nettle (Boehmeria nivea). Linen is similar, but it is made from the stalks of the flax plant. The spun threads have an inherent stiffness, like linen, and so can be woven into a lightweight open-weave pattern that is very cool and refreshing in humid climates.
Ramie is one of the oldest textile fibers. It was used in mummy cloths in Egypt during the period 5000 - 3000 BC, and has been grown in China for many centuries. The main producers of ramie today are China, Brazil, Philippines, India, South Korea and Thailand.
