About Jute

Jute is a plant based fibre which can be spun in coarse, strong threads. Golden color is the main & special feature of this fibre. This fibre is used to make Hessian or Burlap & Gunny Cloth.

How to Maintain

Don't wash jute bags, if jute bags get wet, dry it naturally. If you must wash jute items, hand wash separately in cool water using a mild soap. Jute fabrics or burlap can be brittle so it must be handled gently. Do not wring or twist the wet fabric. Burlap should always be washed alone because it can shed fibres that are difficult to remove from other fabrics especially terry cloth or any napped fabric.

Stains should be treated following the specific stain removal tips for the type of stain.
