Jute is 100% bio-degradable and thus, environment-friendly. It is
used extensively in manufacturing different types of packaging
material for agricultural and industrial products. ute is available
in abundance in India, at competitive prices. Jute is now not just a
major textile fiber, but also a raw material for non-textile
products, which help to protect environment, which is an integral
part of any development planning.
Known for its coarse character due to its heavy texture, jute has
come to acquire the center stage as an eco-friendly alternative.
Jute, characterized by its silky texture, high tensile strength and
resistance to heat and fire is considered fit for use in industries
as varied as fashion, travel and luggage, furnishings, carpets and
floor coverings, decoratives, textiles and made-ups.
GeoJute - The Eco-friendly Fiber
One of the oldest industries in India, Jute has traditionally been
used for packaging. However, its versatility is only coming to light
now as the world looks on for natural options to save the
environment. The time has come for this natural fiber to take over
with the ideal solutions for the modern world.
Be it in conserving the soil and the environment or in applications
like civil engineering, which are essential for the progress of
civilization, jute has the answer. Geo-textiles come in two
varieties: woven and non-woven fabrics.
