Jute threads are:
- Great material for making handcrafted rugs and shopping bags.
- Jute Rope.
- The bags are commonly used for transporting fresh fruits and grains because they’re easy to make and biodegradable when used.
Jute is a strong material used to make many things, like outdoor cushions, curtains, and laundry baskets. However, we love jute carpets the most.
After cotton, jute is the second most versatile fabric there is. It is also the second most widely grown and used fiber worldwide. It needs much less water and almost no fertilizer or pesticides to grow than cotton. This makes it one of the most environmentally friendly crops people have ever grown. It shouldn’t be a surprise that jute rugs are becoming increasingly popular in our country and worldwide.
Where does jute come from, exactly?
The bark of the white jute plant, which has the scientific name Corchorus capsularis, is where most jute is taken from. Jute can only be picked once a year, at the end of a four-month growing season (approximately 120 days).
It is sometimes called the Golden Fibre because of how golden it looks. It is very light, has a shimmering shine, and has more bounce and elasticity than any other fiber.
The best places to grow jute are in tropical areas with medium and high humidity. Countries like India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Myanmar have these areas. Pakistan makes things out of jute, and many raw materials come from Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a country close by.
The people who grow jute switch their crops around so that each harvest is strong and full of life. This keeps the soils healthy and full of life, which helps the farmers. This is one reason why jute rugs are perfect for walking and sitting on, and also why jute is the best fiber for making rugs.
Jute rugs are soft and warm because the fibers are made of natural, organic materials. The strong, knobbly knots in many jute rugs make walking barefoot on them feel like walking on clouds. A jute rug can last for many years, even with a lot of foot traffic and wear from kids and animals. This makes it a great choice for hard floors like hardwood, tile, or concrete.
How do rugs make of jute get made?
A jute fiber can be anywhere from one meter to four meters long. After the jute plant’s stems are cut and put into bundles, they are put into water to separate and loosen the fibers in the plant. This process is called biological retting. After this step is done, the non-fibrous parts of the outside are scraped off, and the weakened fibers are pulled right out of the jute stem.
Even though it takes a lot of time, it doesn’t involve putting harmful substances into the environment.
Chemicals can also be used to remove the fibers from the stem during the retting process, but the cost is much higher, which is great news for our company. Most manufacturers think that using the natural water method is just as easy, so they do that.
After that, these fibers are turned into threads, which are then woven together to make jute fabrics and ropes. Jute fabrics and ropes are used to make jute rugs and a wide range of products for homes and businesses.
Jute fiber can be reused, recycled, and broken down into parts. When it is burned, it doesn’t make any harmful byproducts. Because of this, when your jute rug is no longer useful, you can throw it in the compost. It is also a great choice for weed matting in the garden.
