100% Ramie - Autumnal Paisely

  • 140cm wide
  • Fine Weave 100% Ramie
  • Approx. 155gsm 
  • Non-directional 
  • Main motifs of the print are about 50cm diametre (see last images for full width of the design)
  • See below for more information about Cloth Edit’s Ramie cloth.

'Autumnal Paisley' looks amazing with the new 'Weekender' Corduroys or will be a stunning dress all on its own.  This is another of Cloth Edit Exclusive Ramie prints. It features a rich palette of colours, such as sage and olive greens, light tan and berry, all on a pinkish red background.  You can see in the last images that this design has some bigger motifs, but this is the sort of print that you could happily cut out in an hoc way, and it would look fabulous.   Alternatively, you might want to feature a motif in a skirt or bodice.  

This cloth isn’t like a heavier, floppy linen, but rather like a light and airy linen.   

About Ramie

  • The fibres come from the Ramie plant, and the fabric has been woven for thousands of years, especially in China, India, Korea and Indonesia. 
  • It’s a wonderful natural fibre: durable yet light and resistant to bacteria and ultraviolent light. Ramie dries quickly (and thus has great wicking qualities) and is a perfect choice for blouses/shirts, pants, and dresses.  It’s a great alterative to cotton and linen. 
  • There are different grades of Ramie, just as there are of linen.  The Ramie fabric at Cloth Edit is fine, with a close, even weave.  Looking at it and touching it, this cloth is like a fine, floaty linen.  The fabric has a bit of texture, but the fibres are consistent and smooth. 
  • Fine Ramie can be expensive due to the labour-intensive process of extracting and cleaning the fibres, but it has real ‘eco’ credentials as the process doesn’t include a lot of chemicals.   The recent increase in the production of Ramie has been in response to designers preferring responsibly sourced textile options.
  • This cloth feels even more beautiful after washing.   I’ve done a test by washing at 30 degrees, drying in the tumble dryer (only used for my test purposes), and then ironing.  There was no shrinkage, the colour fastness is great, and the ironing was easy (i.e the creases weren’t resistant).  Normally I would line dry, and the ironing after this would be a breeze.  This is a quality fabric. 

For your cloth edit consider:  semi-fitted or looser shirts, blouses, tops and tunics; dresses (eg. wrap, tunic, shirt dresses), fuller skirts (eg. wrap, midi, gathered, pleated) and loose pants.

        Cloth Care:

        Pre-Wash fabric.  Garments made from Ramie fabric are easy to care for, as they are machine washable and increase in strength when wet, making them durable over time. To keep your treasured make in the best condition, line dry (inside out), machine wash at 30 degrees on a normal cycle.  Avoid Tumble Drying. Hot steam iron. Spot test.
