Ramie is a wonderful natural substance. A linen-like fabric that falls under the cellulose fibers, or natural plant fibers. Made from the bark of the Chinese nettle. Ramie is an eco-friendly fabric that is very durable compared to cotton or man-made (synthetic) fibres. The plant is naturally fungicidal and has few problems with insects, so pesticides and chemicals are not necessary. This makes it an environmentally friendly and ecological crop. Ramie is also known as ramee, Chinese linen, Chinese grass linen and Rhae.

Vegan is associated with vegan food. That's not surprising, because vegan menus are becoming more and more famous. However, a vegan lifestyle, veganism, is more than that. It is a way of life without using and exploiting animals. In other words, no wool sweater and no leather shoes. There is an alternative for everything nowadays. Every year, billions of animals worldwide are killed for their fur, hair, wool or skin. That can be done differently.
