What is ‘Jute’?
Jute is known as the ‘golden fibre’ and is a long, shiny plant fibre that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. It is one of the most economical natural fibres used in the textile industry in second only to cotton in the amount produced every year. It’s diverse uses are endless.
Jute fibre is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and thus environmentally friendly. A hectare of jute plants consumes about 15 tonnes of carbon dioxide and releases 11 tonnes of oxygen. Cultivating jute in crop rotations enriches the fertility of the soil for the next crop. Growing and manufacturing jute does not require the use of hazardous chemicals.
