Jute, known as the “Golden fibre”, is a long, soft and golden silky shining fibre extracted from the Corchorus family. Jute is a rain-fed plant thriving in humid climate and requiring minimal use of pesticides, fertilizers or other chemicals. The fibre extracted from the jute is used in making sacking, hessian bags, yarns and other diversified products.
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 in particular appear in warm, moisty areas. The jute which is used for the bags of EcoJute is from India. Jute is one of the cheapest natural fibres and is second only to cotton in amount produced and variety of uses.
Jute fibres are composed primarily of the plant materials cellulose (major component of plant fibre) and lignin (major components wood fibre). It is thus a ligno-cellulosic fibre that is partially a textile fibre and partially wood. The industrial term for jute fibre is ‘raw jute’. The fibres are off-white to brown, and 1–4 meters (3–12 feet) long.
Jute Bags and Cotton Bags have proved to be an ideal replacement for plastic bags. Bags made from these natural fibers are bio-degradable, eco-friendly, reusable and at the same time help create awareness to the disadvantages of using plastic bags.
