Introduction
Jute is a natural fibre with golden and silky shine and hence called The Golden Fibre. It is the cheapest vegetable fibreprocured from the bast or skin of the plant's stem and the second most important vegetable fibre after cotton, in terms of usage, global consumption, production, and availability. It has high tensile strength, low extensibility, and ensures better breath ability of fabrics.

Jute fibre is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and thus environmentally friendly. It is one of the most versatile natural fibres that has been used in raw materials for packaging, textiles, non-textile, construction, and agricultural sectors. It helps to make best quality industrial yarn, fabric, net, and sacks.

The story of Jute
A substantial industry, employing millions of people, has developed around the production of fine quality Jute. Grown mainly in India , on small family owned plots around the Ganges River Delta, Jute is obtained from two varieties of plant: Corchorus Capsularis and Corchorus Olitorus. It is a natural bast fibre composed of cellulose (the main building material of all plants) and is totally biodegradable. This fibre grows the entire length of the plant stalk from root to top - some can be 10 - 15 feet (3 - 4.5 metres) in length.

Harvested from July to October when the plant is in flower, or when the seed pods are just forming, the long reed like stalks are hand cut and left to dry naturally before the leaves are removed. To extract the fibres, the surrounding bark and pith have to be decomposed. This is achieved by soaking the stalks in ponds or slow moving streams to induce a fermentation process known as 'retting'. This process lasts approximately three weeks after which the fibres are easily stripped from the core by hand.

Hanks of silky jute fibres are separated. Raw jute stacked high on its way from the stems after soaking to the mill..
