As a designer I use Jute as my core fabric of choice and I am excited to have created the world's largest range of Designer Hessian Bags just for You! A lot of hard work goes into each Thyli bag. I work closely with my production team to create these awesome bags using my intuition and customer feedback, sourcing fabrics, tweaking my designs to reduce wastage in production and packaging; and traveling overseas to work with the sampling team on the production floor to bring my creations to life!

Each Thyli bag is therefore unique, a fusion of art and practicality, for everyday use and great as gifts that will get reused.

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.

Care Instructions - Jute / Hessian is very resistant to dirt. Spot clean / gentle sponge to wipe off any marks. Clean the inner lamination with a wet cloth. Do not wash as colours may run. Using a washing machine and dryer is NOT recommended.

Care instructions

Jute / Hessian / Juco - is very resistant to dirt and spot clean / gentle sponge to wipe off any marks. The bag has a laminate on the inside and use a wet cloth to clean the inside liner. Using a washing machine and dryer is NOT recommended as the dryer will melt the laminate. Dry cleaning is fine.

Canvas - Care Instructions: Hand wash separately in cold water. Dry cleaning is fine as well. Drip dry. May shrink due to unbleached canvas used.

Textured Cotton: Hand wash separately in cold water and drip dry. May shrink.

Handlooms Kalamkari / Ikkat: Natural pigment dyes used which will run when washed - this is expected due to the age old process and dyes used. Hand wash separately in cold water and drip dry.

I love my tote, it's beautiful and made so nicely! Fast shipping.

This is my second order as my daughter loved her Thyli tote and wanted one for her best friend. Very good quality and spacious.

Arrived quickly. Item is of a great quality. I use this bag for work. It is the perfect size to fit my lunch, drink bottle, book and more. The pockets neatly fit my keys, phone, sanitiser & lip gloss. The front pocket easily fits a magazine. The handles are thick which makes it comfortable to hold. Great buy!
