(pronounced RAY-mee)

The term ramie is the name of a perennial plant found in Asia, but it also refers to both the fiber made from the plant that can be spun or woven into fabric, as well as to the resulting fabric itself, which frequently looks like silk or linen. Ramie fiber is often combined with silk, cotton or wool to produce fabrics with different characteristics, and the fiber can also be used to produce paper.
