Being renowned for being the strongest and toughest fibers among others, apart from being completely natural and eco-friendly, Jute is also a very classy and suave ingredient to any wardrobe. But this is not where it has limited its usage. With the capability to hold water and moisture, it becomes a great option for packing and similar purposes. Only cotton exceeds Jute in terms of usage, global consumption, production and availability. Some other pros of Jute fiber are enlisted:
Jute is fantastic even the other way round because;
- Totally bio-degradable and recyclable.
- Can be blended with other fibers, natural as well as synthetic, to enhance usage.
- Open to cellulose dye classes such as natural, basic, bat, sulfur, reactive and other pigment dyes.
- One hectare of Jute plantation consumes about 15 tons of CO2, and returns just about 11 tons oxygen during the growing season.
- The nearest synthetic competition of Jute, i.e. Polypropylene requires some 10-20 times more energy consumption than an average Jute plantation.
- Apparently, Jute is eco-friendly and easy on environment as well as your conscious.
