All Things Jute

Eco-friendly jute. You may know jute as hessian or burlap and associate it with sacks or rope but it is so much more than that! Often described as the “golden fiber”, jute is a biodegradable natural fiber that comes from a leafy reed-like plant. It grows easily in West Bengal and has only minimal need of fertilizers and pesticides which can harm the environment. Bottom line: re-usable jute bags offer an eco-friendly and stylish alternative to plastic shopping bags.
