This is an exceptional fabric made of ramie fiber and is stonewashed in the production process. Making this fabric very soft to the touch and giving it a beautiful drape. With the weight being slightly on the medium-heavier side, it makes a beautiful dress, pair of trousers, jacket, boilersuit, skirt, or blazer.
The ramie fiber (grass linen) is obtained from the lower part of the stem of the ramie plant (boehmeria nivea) a type of nettle. The production is comparable to that of linen, but ramie does not need to be bleached because the raw fiber is snow white. Ramie is considered a particularly high-quality 'bast fiber' and the properties are comparable to linen. Next to that this fiber is particularly durable.
