What is Jute?

Jute is obtained from different types of jute plants Corchorus Olitorius and Corchorus Capsularis. These plants are mostly grown in tropical countries like India and Bangladesh throughout the year.

The long, soft and shiny fibers are spun into coarse, strong threads that are then put to a multiple uses. Its second to cotton in terms of production. It’s also referred to as the ‘golden fiber’ due to its color and cost-effectiveness.

Interesting fact: India is the world’s largest producer of raw jute and goods, contributing to over 50 percent and 40 percent respectively of global production.

Type of Jute : Tossa

  • Appearance: Fibers are darker in color, ranging from brown to dark brown.
  • Fiber Quality: It has a coarser texture and is more robust compared to White jute, making it suitable for heavy-duty applications.
  • Uses: It is often used to produce heavy-duty sacks, jute rope, jute twines, jute rug and other coarse products. It is widely used for packaging purposes due to its strength and durability.

Type of Jute : Mesta/Kenaf

Mesta Jute

  • Appearance: Mesta/Kenaf fibers vary in color, with the outer fibers being darker and coarser, while the inner fibers are lighter and softer.
  • Fiber Quality: Mesta/Kenaf fibers have a combination of both coarse and fine fibers, giving them a good balance of strength and softness.
  • Uses: Mesta/Kenaf fibers have a wide range of applications, including the production of paper, biodegradable plastics, textiles, and composites. They are also used in the automotive industry for interior components and in building materials like insulation and panels.

Type of Jute : Jute Cutting

Jute cutting
  • Appearance : Fibers have a naturally coarse texture. The texture affects their ability to interlock and bind together, which is important for various manufacturing processes, including spinning and weaving.
  • Fiber Strength: The strength of jute fibers is crucial for determining their utility in different end products. Stronger fibers contribute to the durability and resilience of jute-based materials.
  • Fiber Color: The color of jute fibers can vary depending on the type of jute (White Jute, Tossa Jute, Mesta, or Kenaf). It can range from off-white to light brown (for White Jute) and from brown to dark brown (for Tossa Jute, Mesta, and Kenaf). The color may influence the appearance of the final jute products
