The lightweight concrete used in Seasonal Living collections is made entirely from natural materials. The primary ingredient is Portland cement, which is a powder made from limestone and gypsum. It is combined with clean, natural sands as an aggregate material. When Portland cement is mixed with clean water, it forms a paste that coats each particle of sand. Through a chemical reaction, hydration, the paste hardens and becomes stronger.
Many types of concrete add steel, synthetic, or glass fibers to increase strength and resist fracturing. Seasonal Living lightweight concrete includes only natural ramie as a reinforcement material. A member of the nettle family, ramie has been cultivated for fiber since prehistoric times. Ramie fabric was used in ancient Egypt and in Europe during the Middle Ages. Because of its strength and durability, ramie is used in industrial sewing threads, packing materials, fishing nets, filter cloths, and fabric.
