Eco-Friendly

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.

In these environmental conscious times, Ludlow has taken the initiative to produce jute products that help in protecting the environment and provide an alternative to synthetic products. Some of the products manufactured by Ludlow in this effort are:-

Leno net fabric :-

Jute woven into mesh is an environmentally safe way to protect the soil surface from erosion. Leno net fabric is used on soils to help protect the soil from water and wind erosion while offering partial shade and heat storage to accelerate vegetative development allowing uninhibited growth of wood plant species and grass. The material is inexpensive, bio-degradable and maintains strength even when wet.

Jute bags - Eco friendly alternative to plastic bags :-

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.

Jute bags provide a good alternative to plastic bags. Ludlow manufactures a huge variety and design of jute bags for various purposes from gunny bags and sacks to hand bags and shopping bags as well.

Geo jute :-

Geo jute is used as a replacement to synthetic fabrics used in construction of roads.

Agro-fabric :-

Agro-fabric is a weather resistant fabric laminated with rubber solution, used in weed control.

Gardening twine :-

Jute twines are used as a support to hold up trees against strong winds.

Hydro carbon free jute products :-

These have been developed (food grade) to meet the worldwide requirement of health and environment conscious customers in the food industry for packing raw materials, semi-finished and finished products, especially hazel nuts, coffee, cocoa etc.
