Ramie is very similar to linen, and although almost unheard of in the western world, it's very popular in East Asia and has been used there for more than six thousand years. Ramie is a very strong natural fabric that is made from the nettle plant. This one comes from Japan and its interesting structure with an open weave makes it perfect for summer ties. In Japan, linen was unknown before the Meiji era (1868 - 1912), and ramie was a common fabric. However, due to Westernization, linen is now much more common in Japan and most ramie manufactories had to shut down. So, this fabric is from one of the very few producers who continues the business there.
