Made from 100% jute, this hard-wearing black hessian fabric is the perfect material to create toys, notice boards, wall coverings and more. This particular fabric has a medium weight (442 gsm) and closer weave than usually found with hessian, making it a more high quality option for items such as accessories, bags and millinery.
More commonly known as burlap, hessian fabric is woven from the long, shiny vegetable fibres of the jute plant. Ordinarily hessian textiles have a coarse hairy texture, however this particular fabric has longer fibres so creating a smoother finish. It is still hardy, durable and sturdy with a stiff structure, however can be moulded easily.
A naturally organic plant, jute is a vegetable fibre that can be grown easily and readily without the use of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilisers. It can be grown on small plots of land alongside food crops, similar to other bast fibres like hemp and flax. The fibre is broken away from the plant stalk via a process of retting from which chemicals are not needed.
Jute is an exceptionally strong fibre, used traditionally for twine in making string, matting and nets. It will last a long time, though can be biodegraded in the right environment. It also doesn't need washing, simply requiring a spritz of freshener or outside drying to prevent mildew build up.
We recommend that you hand wash only this fabric, mainly so that you keep the stiffness in built within the material. We would also suggest that instead of washing, you can simply hang the fabric up to air dry. If you're using this material for upholstery or as a backing, you should wash the fabric first if you expect the item will get wet at some point.
