This product is sold out

A beautiful bundle of chunky, fair trade jute - an great ethical and eco sensitive choice. Beautifully made to order for our supplier by Shohojogita Cooperative in Bangladesh - 9 ply of rustic jute spun into a single twist, thick string. Spun chemical-free (most jute is industrially processed using petroleum lubricants to make the fibre friable).

About jute: Jute is a key fibre for the Bangladesh economy. Jute twines are made from the stripped bark of the jute plant, which can grow 2-3m high - hence producing this long, strong and highly durable bast fibre.

Made in Bangladesh by Shohojogita, a fair trade cooperative helping rural, disadvantaged women to achieve self determination through employment and self-expression.
