At a time when environmental awareness and sustainability are high on the agenda, companies are looking for materials that balance practical needs with sustainability. Jute is a prime example of this as it is both strong and environmentally friendly

What is Jute?

Jute is a long, soft and shiny fiber that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. It is harvested from the jute plant and has historically served as one of the primary components in rope and fabric production.
With its roots in South Asia, where it has been cultivated for more than 5,000 years, jute has always been valued for its robustness and sustainability, often referred to as the "golden fiber".


The renewed interest in sustainable solutions has led to an increased use of jute in packaging, furniture and even fashion. Companies are rediscovering its versatility and environmental benefit, which is causing them to turn to jute. As a natural, biodegradable and renewable resource, jute meets the increasing environmental demands of consumers and companies.
