The Accepts Of Jute Furnishings

Jute is a long, soft, shiny vegetable fiber that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. It is produced primarily from plants in the genius Corchorus, which was once classified with the family Tiliaceae, and more recently with Malvaceae. The primary source of the fiber is Corchorus olitorius, but is is considered inferior to Corchorus capsularis. Jute is the name of the plant or fiber that is used to make burlap, hessian or gunny cloth.

Jute fiber is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and thus environmentally friendly.

Jute has low pesticide and fertilizer needs.

It is natural fiber with golden and silky shine and hence called The Golden Fiber.

It is the vegetable fiber procured from the bast or skin of the plant’s stem.

It is the second most important vegetable fiber after cotton, in the terms of usage, global consumption, production, and availability.

It has high tensile strength, low extensibility, and ensures better breathability of fabrics. Therefore, jute is very suitable in agricultural commodity bulk packaging.

Jute has the ability to be blended with other fibers, both synthetic and natural, and accepts cellulosic dye classes such as natural, basic, vat, sulfur, reactive, and pigment dyes. As the demand for natural comfort fibers increases. The demand for jute and other natural fibers that can be blended with cotton will increase.

Jute has certain inherent properties, e.g. susceptible to catching fire, microbial attack, and high moisture absorption which have restricted its growth of use towards protective textiles. To find use as value added technical textiles, jute fabric have to undergo improved chemical finishing process especially fire retardancy, water repellency, not resistance etc. depending on end use application. Jute and jute based fabrics are gaining popularity in domestic and international field due to eco-fiiedliness and biodegradability characteristics. To find use as value added technical textiles, jute fabric have to undergo improved chemical finishing process especially fire retardancy, water repellency, rot resistance etc. depending on end use application. For the development of various types of functional finishing of jute, proper choice of chemicals along with process parameters are important.
