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. This fibre is collected from the bats or skin of the Jute Plant. This is the most affordable 100 % natural fibre after Cotton. Since this is a valuable natural fibre & it has golden color so it is called "The Golden fibre". India & Bangladesh are the main producer of this fibre. At this moment there is no alternative of jute to reduce the usage of plastic and it's very important to stop using plastic bags for saving our nature. Most of the developed countries are trying to use jute bags but it is a little problem for developing countries since jute bags are costly when compared to plastic bags. Jute is better than cotton since it consumes very low chemical during it's processing. Most of developed countries are using jute bags to protect nature.
Jute is one of the strongest natural fibre. The long staple fibre has high tensile strength and low extensibility. It's luster determines quality; the more it shines, the better the quality. It also has some heat and fire resistance. Jute has biodegradable feature.
