About Jute

Jute is an extremely environmental and sustainable material. Also known as Hessian, it is a rain-fed crop and cultivated without the need for any fertilizer or pesticides (therefore preserving the integrity of the land on which it is grown). Jute is a natural based plant fibre composed of cellulose and is 100% biodegradable and water resistant. Moreover, Jute reaches full maturity within 4-6 months, making it a highly sustainable material requiring little tendering.

The Jute fibre comes from the stem and ribbon (outer skin) of the plant. Once the crop has been harvested, the fibres are separated from the woody central core by "retting" - a process consisting of bundling Jute stems together and immersing them in low, running water. The fibrous outer of the plant is then removed and allowed to dry. Once dry the Jute fibres are graded according to colour, then processed and spun into yarn suitable for weaving.
