Jute has a long history of use in the sackings, carpets, wrapping fabrics and construction fabric manufacturing industry. But, the major breakthrough came when the automobile, pulp and paper, and the furniture and bedding industries started to use jute and its allied fibres with their non-woven and composite technology to manufacture nonwovens, technical textiles, composite production of sheet moulding compound for varied purposes.
Hessian is a woven fabric usually made from skin of the jute plant or sisal fibres, which may be combined with other vegetable fibres to make rope, nets, and similar products. Hessian, a dense woven fabric, has historically been produced as a coarse fabric, but more recently it is being used in a refined state known simply as jute as an eco-friendly material for bags, rugs and other products. Hessian is often used to make sacks and bags to ship goods. it has also been used by artists as an alternative to canvas as a stretched painting or working surface.
Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect, or drain. Typically made from polypropylene or polyester, geotextile fabrics come in three basic forms: woven (resembling mail bag sacking), needle punched (resembling felt), or heat bonded (resembling ironed felt). Geotextile composites have been introduced and products such as geogrids and meshes have been developed. Overall, these materials are referred to as geosynthetics and each configuration can yield benefits in geotechnical and environmental engineering design.
Jute Soil Saver, biodegradable erosion control blankets are open weave, pure geo-jutemeshes designed to protect both seed and soil on bare surfaces vulnerable to surface erosion by rain, run-off and wind. The fabrics mould easily to the ground contours; effectively control surface erosion; create a micro-climate which boosts plant development; and fully decompose once vegetation has established. This is consistently ranked as top performers under independent trials, and used extensively on a wide range of projects, and widely acknowledged as the best, and most economical, solution where effective vegetation will establish within two to three years.
Nursery squares are used to protect the root clump of plants and trees with a technique called rootballing. The nursery squares are manufactured from 100% natural Jute fibre. This fibre has been manufactured in india to the highest standards. The bio-based material will naturally biodegrade over time and allow the plant to develop naturally. The nursery squares are available in varied sizes.
Jute upholstery webbing can be used anywhere in the upholstery but the main function of it is the support for coil springs in the seat and back. Our burlap webbing is a strong, rigid, and elegant looking non-stretch fabric commonly used for upholstery for things such as seats, backs, belts, tote bags, luggage racks, and other craft applications.

This close woven Jute Tarpaulin is a heavy duty hessian which many upholsterers prefer to use over webbing or springs to ensure that hair or fibre is well contained. An extremely tough hessian, available by the metre but also by the roll for extensive use. Suitable for a wide variety of end use applications where a thick strong hessian material is required.
A gunny sack, also known as a "gunny shoe", is an inexpensive bag made of hessian (burlap) usually formed from jute or other natural fibers, although modern sacks are often made from polypropylene; the "gunny" portion of the name ultimately descends from Tulu goni. Gunny sacks are traditionally used for transporting grains, potatoes, and other agricultural products. Today they are also sometimes used as sandbags for erosion control.
