Over the years, with the help of dedicated research and development efforts by reputed organisations in India, the natural attributes of this fibre have been further strengthened. Due to technological developments the golden fibre has now entered into a myriad of applications generating employment, contributing to sustainable human development and leading to a cleaner and healthier environment.
Jute being one of the oldest industries in India, has traditionally been used for packaging. However its versatility is only coming to light now as the world looks for natural options to lower the impact of packaging on our environment.
The time has come for this natural fibre to take over with ideal solutions for the modern world. Be it in preventing the erosion of soil and lowering the impact of landfill due to plastic bags, or in applications like civil engineering which are essential for the progress of civilisation, and now along with calico, becoming the responsible alternative for a diverse range of bags – jute natural fibre is the way of the future for multitudes of applications.
In coming times more jute mills and mini-jute plants will be engaged in a big way producing more jute and jute blended yarns, especially of finer counts, and these light weight yarns are being used in value added textile applications like upholstery, furnishing, garments, fancy bags, shopping bags, corporate bags, wine bottle bags, Christmas and other festive bags and the options are truly endless.
