What is Jute?

Jute is a natural fibre that is extracted from the bark of the jute vegetable plant. It is a long, soft and shiny fibre that is one of the strongest natural fibres in the world, and is the second most produced fibre after cotton. Jute has the ability to be blended with other fibres both synthetic and natural, and accepts natural, reactive and pigment dyes. It can be made into wholesale jute bags, also known as hessian bags or burlap bags, quite easily.

A little more about Jute…

Once jute twine has been woven into jute fabric it has a soft cloth like finish. To achieve the rigid shape needed for jute shopping bags, the jute fabric then needs to be laminated.

Apart from standard non-laminated and laminated jute, jute can be processed to achieve different finishes such as:

Dyed Jute
Fire Retardant Jute
Water Repellant Jute
Rot Proof Jute

Jute fabric is not measured by weight, instead the jute fabric is differentiated by thread count.

Jute fabric can be woven in various thread counts such as 13×13, 14×15, and 17×17. This measurement is the number of threads per square inch of the fabric. So a 17×17 jute fabric will have a finer weave than 14×15 jute fabric.

Jute can also be woven with other materials such as cotton to achieve unique fabrics such as:

Jutton (Jute & Cotton Mix)
Jute Acrylic
Matt Weave
Herringbone Weave

Although jute originates from a green plant, the finished jute twine is a natural fibre with a golden and silky shine.

Jute yarn and woven fabric can be dyed to match any pantone colour.
