Things to Know About Jute

Environmentally friendly jute is non-pollutant. It produces no toxic gases or harmful gases as by-products of jute. Jute fibre absorbs several times more CO2 from the atmosphere than trees. If you are environmentally aware, then perhaps we can suggest to think about choosing a Jute Bag for your next promotional bag.

The Properties of Jute Bags

Jute is a long, soft, shiny vegetable fiber that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. It is produced from plants in the genus Corchorus, which was once classified with the family Tiliaceae, more recently with Malvaceae, and has now been reclassified as belonging to the family Sparrmanniaceae. “Jute” is the name of the plant or fiber that is used to make burlap, Hessian or gunny cloth.

Affordable Jute Bags

Jute is one of the most affordable natural fibers and is second only to cotton in so far as the amount produced and variety of uses of vegetable fibers. Jute fibers are composed primarily of the plant materials cellulose and lignin. It falls into the bast fiber category (fiber collected from bast or skin of the plant) along with kenaf, industrial hemp, flax (linen), ramie, etc. The industrial term for jute fiber is raw jute. Jute is also called “the golden fiber” for its color and high cash value.
