Jute Fabrics

Jute fabric is made from stretched strong, raw bast fibers. After cotton, jute is the most used natural fiber. The mechanical stretching of jute to jute thread and jute fabric originated in Scotland in the early 18th century. In the past, jute bags were mainly used in agriculture because it is biodegradable. In the Netherlands and Belgium, jute fabric is of course best known for the bag of Sinterklaas.


Today jute is a very hip and popular product. It is environmentally friendly and extremely suitable as decoration or adornment. A lot of jute is also currently used in the interior, for example by means of jute curtains, jute cushions, jute rugs and jute decorations.


Jute – although you might not realize it – is actually one of the most common fabrics around, only second to cotton! With that in mind, do you actually know where jute fabric comes from? As it turns out, jute fabric is a common fabric most often used for home goods and homewares.

Jute is the name of the plant that this fabric is derived from, but you might know it as “burlap.” Essentially, jute fabric is a tough, durable, and rough fabric that is most commonly found in products like carpets, window treatments, rugs, and even furniture covers. Likewise, “hessian” cloth, which is another, lighter form of jute fabric, is often used to make what you’d consider “burlap” bags and sacks.

As a natural fiber, jute is quite textured. If you’re familiar with a jute rope, jute furniture, or jute rugs, then you likely already know what to expect.

Let’s also not forget, jute is a relatively sustainable fabric because it’s so easy to produce. Not only that, but the fibers produced by jute plants are 100% biodegradable too.
