Concept

Rami combines the feel and look of exclusive Italian fabrics with rustic natural materials. Ramie is one of the oldest recorded natural fibres, and has been found in the shrouds used to wrap Egyptian mummies. The plant, which has natural antibacterial and flame-retardant properties, is also known as China grass, and is related to the nettle family. A wool–ramie blend offers many advantages. The different materials absorb colours differently when dyed, giving the fabric depth and life. The blend also means that the fabric doesn’t wrinkle as easily as pure linen. And both ramie and wool have excellent moisture-absorbing properties, particularly suitable for environments that are prone to static electricity problems. Rami features an extensive range of 40 colours.
