Jute Carryall Fabindia 25cmx25cmx37cm





A reusable jute bag can replace more than 300 conventional plastic bags in its lifetime. Choosing a reusable jute bag or cotton bag is one way to take personal responsibility for minimising waste and for using resources in a sustainable way. Reusable bags help to promote waste minimization activities and to boost environmental awareness.  Jute itself is virtually an organic textile and will biodegrade completely at the end of the bag's life.

A functional, round bottomed, breathable bag  that is roomy and comfortable to shop around with.

Dimension 25cmx25cmx37cm

RM 30

                                                                         


Why Jute?



Picture of cutting lower part of the long jute fibre. The lower part is hard fibre, which is called jute cuttings in Bangladesh and India (commonly calledjute butts or jute tops elsewhere). Jute fibres are kept in bundles in the background in a warehouse in Bangladesh.
  • Jute fibre is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and thus environmentally friendly.
  • It is a natural fibre with golden and silky shine and hence called The Golden Fibre.
  • It is the cheapest vegetable fibre procured from the bast or skin of the plant's stem.
  • It is the second most important vegetable fibre after cotton, in terms of usage, global consumption, production, and availability.
  • It has high tensile strength, low extensibility, and ensures better breathability of fabrics.

    I very much appreciate your comments. I am sorry. I have not focused much on my blog as I failed to see favourable response in the beginning. I have to tweak my settings so I can get updates on your precious comments. Where are you based and if I can collaborate in any way please let me know. Thank you.
