Ramie (xia bu, 夏布), a linen-like fibre derived from the stalks of the Chinese nettle plant, has been cultivated and used in China for many centuries. Often regarded as the queen of bast fibres, ramie is known for its strength and silky luster in the finished fabrics, as well as its resistance to wrinkling, shrinking, and mildew. The process of making this kind of fabric is very time consuming, which involves harvesting the ramie, degumming, spinning the yarn and handweaving under a certain temperature and humidity level. 

Equipped with two hidden front pockets, this sizable and durable tote allows for greater organization as you go about your busy lives!
