Jute Bast Fiber



Jute is a yellowish-brown fiber that grows mainly in Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan.




It is coarse and harsh, with good resistance to


microorganisms and insects. The fiber has moderate dry


strength but low wet strength.It has low elongation, which


helps it retain its shape when made into items such as sacs.


Jute is shorter than most bast fibers and is inexpensive to


produce. It also has fair abrasion resistance. Its main end


uses include burlap fabric for bagging, fabric for interior


furnishings, carpets backing, and cordage.
