The Creation and Uses of Jute
The cultivation of Jute requires a warm and humid climate, plenty of rainfall, and well-drained, loamy soils. The interesting thing about growing jute is that it hardly needs fertilisers and pesticides. After the stems are harvested from the plant, they are subjected to ‘retting’, wherein they are steeped into slow running water for 10 to 30 days in order to allow for bacteria to dissolve the gummy materials holding the fibres together. After this, the non-fibrous matter of Jute is scraped off in a process called ‘stripping’, and then the fibres are separated by beating the stem with a paddle. The separated fibres are then washed, dried, graded, and sent off to Jute mills, where they are further processed to make Jute yarn. The yarn is then used for the production of the various Jute products.

Jute has endless uses from making clothes, ropes and household products in the ancient times, Jute sandbags were exported from Bengal to the trenches during World War I. Subsequently, it was used for fishing, arms and construction industry. In the modern times, this versatile fibre is used for making household items such as carpets, sacks, rugs, coverlets for chairs etc. The more diversified use of Jute includes products such as espadrilles that lend an element of glam to this otherwise humble fibre.
An Eco Creation
The Start of Jute
The British East India Company was the first trader of Jute. In 1793, the Company exported around 100 tons of Jute. When a shipment was sent to Dundee, Scotland, the flax spinners were anxious to learn whether Jute could be processed mechanically. In the 1830’s, the Dundee spinners learned how to spin Jute yarn by modifying their power-driven flax machinery. The rise of the Jute industry in Dundee saw a corresponding increase in the production and export of raw Jute from the Indian sub-continent. Calcutta (now Kolkata) was the hub for the raw materials. There was an abundant supply of labour as well as ample coal for power. The city was also conveniently located for international shipping. The first Jute mill was established at Rishra, on the River Hooghly near Calcutta in 1855. By 1869, five mills were operating with 950 looms. By 1910, 38 companies exported more than a billion yards of cloth and over 450 million bags. By 1939, there were a total of 68,377 looms, concentrated mainly on the River Hooghly near Calcutta.
The earliest jute products made in Dundee were coarse bagging materials. With more experience, however, finer fabrics called burlap, or hessian were produced. After the fall of British Empire in India in 1947, most of the Jute barons left India, though the industrial set-up for Jute manufacturing remained. Most of these mills were taken over by the Marwari businessmen. East Pakistan lacked a Jute Industry but had the finest stock of the fibre. As political tension rose between India and Pakistan, the latter felt the need to set-up their own Jute industry. After the liberation of Bangladesh from Pakistan in 1971, most of the Pakistani owned Jute mills were taken over by the government of Bangladesh. Eventually, the Bangladeshi government set up the Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation.
Jute Personal Care Bag… Closing Thoughts
ute has been grown and processed in the Bengal area of India and Bangladesh since ancient times. Its biggest use is in burlap sacks and bags, which are used to ship and store many agricultural products. High-quality Jute cloths are used as backing for tufted carpets and hooked rugs. Coarser jute fibres are made into twines, rough cordage and doormats. Jute is the 2nd most important vegetable fibre next to cotton. Jute is used chiefly to make cloth for wrapping bales of raw cotton, and to make sacks and coarse cloth. The fibres are also woven into curtains, chair coverings, carpets, area rugs, hessian cloth, and backing for linoleum. While Jute is being replaced by synthetic materials in many of these uses, some uses take advantage of Jute’s biodegradable (Eco) nature, where synthetics would be unsuitable.
Examples of such uses include containers for planting young trees, which can be planted directly with the container without disturbing the roots, and land restoration where jute cloth prevents erosion occurring while natural vegetation becomes established. The Jute fabric is much soughed item for fashionable clothes, home furnishing and fashion accessories. The most important use of the Jute fabric is in the manufacturing of carpets, linoleum, cordage and twines. It is sometimes used as webbing to cover inner springs of the auto seats. Sometimes used as fashion accessory used for fashion garments, tapestries, soft luggage, etc. Jute embodies the necessary conditions that may reverse the course of our plastic problem that is not sustainable, and that we can no longer fail to substitute. For that reason, it’s worth consideration as a more sustainable material.
