Jute

old french grain sacks:

Jute is a long, soft, shiny vegetable bast fiber. Which can be spun into coarse, strong threads. Jute is therefore associated with plant fibers. It is obtained from plants of the genus Corchorus, which mainly occur in warm, moist areas, for example in India, Bangladesh and China. Jute is one of the cheapest natural fibers, and the most widely used cotton after.

Characteristics:

–  Unfortunately jute poor resistance to moisture. So bad in fact that it should have a special anti-stain treatment, because it tolerates no detergent.
–  A further disadvantage is that jute is not very strong, susceptible to wear and shorter battery life.
–  Jute is very thin and not well insulated for cold periods.
–  Jute is a soil release agent. Dirt will not find here.
