Jute is a material that is made of a rough fiber taken from the stem of an Old World tropical plant. This material comes to use in making ropes, mats and sacks but these days it is also being incorporated in making bags, stools, lamp shades, wall accents, storage cases, etc.
Jute is the second largest crop cultivated all around the world. Jute is very rough in texture and comes to use in making imitation silk and paper too. It is also a good alternate to wood because its stem has a woody inner core and takes comparatively very less time to harvest. Jute is known to have excellent insulation property and low thermal conductivity. Jute fiber is environment friendly since it is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable. It comes to use for various purposes across many industries ranging from construction, textile, packaging, non-textile and agriculture.
