India—The largest manufacturer of jute goods in the world

JUTE is a natural vegetable plant fibre that grows well in temperate, wet and humid climate and thus production is concentrated around the Ganges delta region of India and Bangladesh where the warm, wet climate during the monsoon season provides ideal growing conditions. India and Bangladesh are the major producers of jute in the world. The natural fiber used in the fabric of our jute bags comes from the stem and outer skin of the jute plant.

PROCESSING OF RAW JUTE FIBRE:

The cultivation of jute begins in the month of April by preparing the land for sowing. Jute is primarily a rain-fed crop that doesn't need much in the way of fertilizer or pesticides making it cost effective to grow. It takes between four and six months for the plants to mature and reach a height of around 8-12 feet when they are harvested.  It has little green leaves, but no branches.

The stalks are then cut-off, tied into bundles and soaked (retted) in water for about 20 days. The process of retting softens the tissues and permits the fibres to be separated. The fibres are then peeled off from the stalks in long strands and washed in low running water. Then they are spread out to dry under the sun.

The jute fibres are off-white to golden brown in color (hence nicknamed GOLDEN Fibre). They are pressed into bales and shipped to jute mills for converting into yarns which is later woven into jute fabric.

Why Jute?

  •     JUTE is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and hence eco-friendly.
  •     JUTE has high tensile strength, and fabrics made out of jute fibres are CO2 neutral and hence decomposable.
  •     JUTE is :
  •     Earth –friendly
  •     Strong
  •     Washable
  •     Fashionable
  •     Versatile
  •     Jute has high tensile strength, low extensibility, and ensures better breath ability of fabrics.  Therefore, jute is very suitable in agricultural commodity bulk packaging.
  •     It helps to make best quality industrial yarn, carpet backing yarn, fabric, net, sacks. Bulking of yarn results in a reduced breaking tenacity.
  •     Advantages of jute include good insulating and antistatic properties, low thermal conductivity and a moderate moisture regain. Other advantages of jute include acoustic insulating properties and manufacture with no skin irritations making it ideal for home decor and furnishings.
  •     Jute has the ability to be blended with other fibers, both synthetic and natural, and accepts cellulosic dye classes such as natural, basic, vat, sulfur, reactive, and pigment dyes. As the demand for natural comfort fibers increases, the demand for jute and other natural fibers that can be blended with cotton will increase.
  •     JUTE prevents soil erosion and nurtures vegetation.
  •     With silky lustre and aesthetic appeal, JUTE is here to stay as a Fashion statement.
