Jute, also called The Golden Fibre, finds universal favour for its inherent properties and eco-friendliness. With changing times, many new uses have been found for this wonder fibre. Its natural texture and strength allows it to be used for variety of uses, both functional and decorative. Today it has become fashionable to use jute. From sacks to sophistication, jute has caught the imagination of people round the globe. Thanks to technology breakthroughs, jute is now used in making a number of non-traditional products, patronized both in India and abroad. But in jute's stately journey from low value sacks to sophisticated products entailing a high degree of value addition, the eco-friendliness of the natural fibre played an important role.
Jute is a long, soft, shiny vegetable fibre that can be spun into strong and fine yarns. It belongs to the genus Corchorus family, Malvaceae. Jute apart from being eco-friendly possesses characteristics of a silky lustre with high tensile strength and low extensibility. It also has heat and fire retardant properties.
Found in abundance in India, jute has the potential to be a substitute for more expensive fibres and scarce forest resources. Today jute is looked upon not only as a major textile fibre but also as a raw material for making products that are used in helping to protect the environment.

Jute, the golden fibre has gained immense popularity around the globe because of its biodegradable character. Biodegradability has given jute an edge over synthetic bags. Its contents are cellulose and lignin, the chief cause behind its biodegradable property. Jute also does not generate toxic gases when burnt as in case of plastic bags.
The plastic bags aren't biodegradable. Disposing it too is a problem as it clogs the landmass and water bodies of our planet. Thus these bags are an environmental menace and cause of serious environmental problem.
