Ramie Wash Cloth
This Ramie Wash Cloth is a wonderful eco friendly alternative to the traditional plastic shower puff. Natural fibres are crocheted to create this wash cloth.
The ramie fabric used is ethically and sustainably sourced.
Ramie is a great eco-friendly fabric option. Plant fibres from ‘white ramie’ B. nivea, from the same family as common stinging nettles, are spun into a fabric. (But don’t worry, unlike the common nettle, the hairs from this nettle plant do not sting!) The end result is a textured fabric with a feel somewhere between linen and a brushed cotton. This ramie plant fibre fabric is then expertly crocheted into this lovely wash cloth. The ramie fabric naturally has antimicrobial properties, which makes it an ideal option to be used to make this lovely natural exfoliating wash cloth. Ramie is extremely absorbent; and is a very strong fabric, even more so when wet! However when it does reach the end of its useful life, the natural fibres of this product are biodegradable.
