Do you know ramie?

Only a year ago I used to think that ramie is a synthetic fabric… What a mistake!

Ramie is a natural fabric from Chinese nettle. It is most close to linen fabric and has got some of the same qualities.

It’s super comfy for summer as it keeps you cool and doesn’t stick to your body when you sweat. Dries quickly, too.

This sweet vintage dress in ramie is by United Colors of Benetton. I happen to find great pieces by this brand every once in a while.
