A stunning fusion of Juco and handloom (woven) multi-coloured Jute to produce this handbag or shopping tote. This reusable bag has rexine handles for your comfort with an inner zip internal pocket for easy access to phone / keys and top zipper closure for securing your valuables. No harsh chemicals used in dyes.
Handloom Jute is woven by skilled craftpersons with the same qualities of traditional Jute but with a softer feel. Juco is 70% Hessian / Jute blended with 30% cotton.
No harsh chemicals used in dyes.
As a designer I use Jute as my core fabric of choice and I am proud to have created the world's largest range of designer hessian bags. I work closely with my production team to create these awesome bags from inception using my intuition and customer feedback, sourcing fabrics, traveling to work with the sampling team on the factory floor to ensure bags are made to my specification, tweaking my designs to reduce wastage in production/packaging and managing the product photo shoot.
Jute plant is a natural grass known as the "golden fibre" that is Earth friendly with a low carbon footprint compared to cotton. Jute relies on rain water and uses less water than cotton. Cotton uses large amounts of irrigated water, is pesticide and fertilizer intensive which places pressure on rivers, soil, biodiversity and the eco system. I have used Jute from the Bay of Bengals wetlands where most of the world's jute is sourced. Jute grows quickly, requires less land and millions of rural people rely on harvesting jute as a source of income. Hessian or burlap fabric is made from the Jute plant. Hessian, Burlap and Jute terms are used interchangeably.
