Pure Lotus fabric

The Lotus fabric is the first natural microfiber and probably the most ecological fabric in the world. Like other microfibers, it has remarkable properties: it is amazingly resistant, soft, light-weight, wrinkle-free and sustainable.

The plain woven pure Lotus fabric is recommended for jackets and dresses, as it is hard wearing and soft.
The airy pure Lotus fabric is recommended for scraves, as it is especially breathable and light.

In Buddhist teaching, Lotus flower symbolizes inner-determination and spirituality through its ability to move from darkness to light without being overwhelmed by a hostile environment. Lotus clothes worn by Buddhist monks centuries ago had then a spiritual value. After years of oblivion, this lost handicraft has now been brought back to life by Samatoa Lotus Textiles.
