Jute is one of the most important textile fibres. It is used for manufacturing various items for use various purposes. The demand for jute products has increased mainly on account of development of agriculture and industries in the world.
Jute is an industrial fibre, and in most enduses jute materials are expected to give a satisfactory functional performance. This invariably demands adequate strength, with appearance and colour of little practical significance, unlike other types of textiles, such as woolen goods, where subjective values, not readily expressible in scientific terms, may well assume priority. The term “quality”, when used in relation to textiles, has different connotations in different sections of the industry, but, for jute, quality will be taken to relate to performance, and specifically to strength properties. T hroughout this thesis, appropriate references will be made to publish works.
At home, think about jute rug which also known as hessian, is a long vegetable-fiber spun into coarse strands commonly used to make burlap fabric. These natural fiber rugs are often hand-woven using hessian and other plant fibers, making them organic home decor pieces. When you want to add unique flooring to your home, a natural jute rug is the perfect accent piece.
Look for a hand-woven braided jute rug you can place in the entryway of your home or buy natural rugs for your living room to complement your couch and other furniture. Jute textiles are durable. Jute area rugs are woven from thick fibers and are naturally brown in color, which makes stains less noticeable.
Jute has been serving as the essential raw material for the world’s need of packing and cordage for some centuries. Its importance in the packing industry may be compared to the extensive role of cotton in textile in the pre-synthetics period. In recent past acetate, rayon, nylon, acrylic and lately a host of man made fibres have moved into the premises of natural fibres like cotton, wool and silk and thus have added big new dimensions to the possibilities of textile materials.
The task of the textile technologists working for natural fibres become more challenging as the superior appearance and performance of the synthetic substitutes posed ones primarily because of its cheapness as it has not been economical for the synthetic fibres to operate in the price range of jute.
