Why Jute?

Why Jute?

Let's take a look at some reasons why this plant should be YOUR next textile alternative, too.

What are the benefits of Jute?

Jutes quality makes for high-end textiles with durability like no other fiber out there! They are:


When this plant is growing, it absorbs CO², thus helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions which lead to global warming and climate change. Produced without using harmful pesticides and herbicides, these fibers can be recycled up to six times without loss of strength or quality. Harvesting uniquely leaves the soil richer, rather than depleted as traditional alternatives do. 

This is because it replenishes nitrogen back into the ground naturally, making it one of the most environmentally friendly materials on the market today! This eco-friendly alternative also uses less water to grow and maintain, and because it’s biodegradable, it’s a no-brainer alternative to plastic, metals, and fabric.


Jute is extremely durable and is resistant to tearing. The material will not fray or unravel, which means you do not have to be concerned with it coming apart over time. It's stronger than cotton and bamboo, but still softer than hemp.


The natural fibers of jute are not only strong but also resistant to rot and decomposition. It is able to resist mold growth as it does not support mildew spores to grow on its fibers. This makes it a great option for sustainable products that need to withstand the elements, perfect for outdoor projects like decking flooring or window shades.

Jute also has natural UV protection properties that can help extend the lifespan of the products by protecting them from sun exposure. 


Jute is hypoallergenic, which means it will not trigger any allergies. If you are concerned with using harmful chemicals in your home or business, jute can be a great alternative because it has anti-microbial properties.


Jute products have phenomenal insulating and antistatic properties, as well as having low thermal conductivity and moderate moisture retention. It provides warmth without being too heavy, perfect for all kinds of clothing items like sweaters, jackets, and hats.

Fast and Easy Growth

Jute is also a crop that can be harvested in one year, which means you will not have to wait long before the material is ready. Jute also has very few pests - only one type of worm feeds on the leaves! Making it easier to grow than other crops such as cotton.

Monetary Benefits

The crop is a great source of revenue for farmers, as it provides food, shelter, medicine, and clothing for their families. Additionally, it’s extremely cost-effective to make, while still producing quality products!

Looking at all the different uses and benefits that this incredibly sustainable living alternative has to offer, it is easy to understand why…

The Future is Jute

The demand for natural and sustainable fiber blends is growing rapidly. Jute has now been acknowledged as an environmental, cost-effective material, and despite its limited market share at present, there is potential to expand dramatically as more resources and knowledge are invested in it. 

What are you waiting for? It’s time that this incredible product gets the investment it deserves. The future consideration of sustainability is upon us, and the solution is Jute.
