Jute bags and baskets
Wanna learn some interesting facts about our jute bags? Then let me hear you shout, “Jute me up, baby!”
Let’s dive right in.
The jute fibres used to create our range derives from Rajasthan, which is home to a growing group of phenomenal weavers.
These artisans are passionate about weaving and are committed to preserving their special weaving heritage.
In celebration of their craft they adopt traditional techniques that have been passed down through their families for generations to skilfully hand weave these magnificent gifts.
The weavers spin the fibres into large coarse threads and masterfully weave them to ensure the basket and bags are strong and durable.
The thick sturdy handles ensure they are comfortable to use as well.
When it comes to manufacturing goods that are kind to the planet, jute is a fabulous choice.
It’s eco-friendly as it originates from natural rain fed vegetable fibres.
Jute doesn’t require many pesticides or fertiliser (if any at all) to grow and thrive, which is awesome news for our planet.
Plus it’s biodegradable and sustainable so if you were looking for a way to strut your stuff without harming the planet then you can relax safe in the knowledge that our jute bags and baskets tick all the right boxes.
