Jute In Bangladesh
Jute is the main export oriented cash crop of Bangladesh. It is called as the Golden Fiber of Bangladesh. Jute is an integral part of Bangladeshi culture. It is grown widely all over Bangladesh but especially in the entire southwest portion of Bangladesh. Presently Bangladesh is the second largest jute producing country in the word. Bangladeshi jute is preferred by the consumers worldwide than any other countries because of it's superior quality. Monson climate and the delta plain washed by the criss crossed rivers bring it favourable fertility and minerals for production of superior quality jute.
Bangladeshi Jute fiber produced from the following four common groups of jute plant is classified into several variations under kutcha and pucca grading systems based on the top, middle and bottom stalk to which the fiber is belonged to as well as fiber qualities like color, lustre, length, strength, fineness and cleanliness, etc. According to the quality of species, these are:
- Bangla White (Corchorus capsularis)
- Bangla Tossa (Corchorus olitorius)
- Mesta or Roselle (Hibiscus Sabdariffa) and
- Kenaf (Hibiscus Cannabinus)
Available quality variations of the above species under kutcha grading system are: Tops, Middle, Bottoms, B-bottoms, C-bottoms and X-bottoms, etc. In this system, fiber produced from the upper or topper stalk of jute plants is considered as comperatively good quality jute fiber. However, this grading system implies for locally consumed jute fiber only.
On the other hand pucca grading system followed by basic kutcha grading systemt is used for internationally consumed jute fiber only. The different quality variations under pucca grading systems are described below.
- Bangla White (Corchorus capsularis): Bangla White Special (B.W.S.), Bangla White-A (B.W.-A.), Bangla White-B (B.W.-B.), Bangla White-C (B.W.-C.), Bangla White-D (B.W.-D.) and Bangla White-E (B.W.-E.), etc.
- Bangla Tossa (Corchorus olitorius): Bangla Tossa Special (B.T.S.), Bangla Tossa-A (B.T.-A.), Bangla Tossa-B (B.T.-B.), Bangla Tossa-C (B.T.-C.), Bangla Tossa-D (B.T.-D.) and Bangla Tossa-E (B.T.-E.), etc.
- Mesta or Roselle (Hibiscus Sabdariffa): Mesta Special, Mesta-A, Mesta-B and Mesta-C, etc.
- Kenaf (Hibiscus Cannabinus): Kenaf Special, Kenaf-A, Kenaf-B and Kenaf-C, etc.
In the above plant groups as well as fiber variations under both kutcha and pucca grading systems, the first ones in the serial represent the better ones.

Jute Bag [Sack]
Among our offered jute bags there are sacking bag and burlap bag or hessian bag or gunny bag. Sacking bag or jute sack can be classified into two categories depending on the construction of fabric which are known as twill sacking bag with twill weave and double warp (d.w.) sacking bag which has double warp plain wevae. Some examples of twill sacking bags are binola twill bag, b-twill bag, l-twill bag and a-twill bag, etc. whereas light cees bag, heavey cees bag, d.w. hop bag, d.w. nitrate bag, d.w. flour bag and d.w. salt bag, etc. are the examples of double warp (d.w.) bags . On the other hand burlap bag or hessian bag produced from hessian cloth comes with plain weave only. Jute bags are widely used for various food garins and cash crops packing by agro based industries. Jute sacking bags are commonly used to pack rice, wheat, maize, sugar, coffee bean and cocoa bean, etc. jute hessian or burlap bags are used to pack potato, onion, garlic, ginger, pea, vegetable bean, lentil, mustard seed, tea, raw cotton fiber and fish, etc. For instance, binola twill, standard b-twill and standard l-twill sacking bags are widely used for packing rice, wheat, maize & similar food grains. Standard a-twill sacking bags are widely used for packing rice flour, wheat flour, corn flour and other similar food powder. standard e-twill sacking bags are widely used for packing sugar and other similar food grains. D.W. light cees and heavy cees sacking bags are used for packing coffee bean, cocoa bean, shelled nut and hazel nut. Jute burlap/hessian bag are used for packing potato, onion, garlic, ginger, pea, lentil and mustard seed etc. As a jute bags manufacturing service provider, jute bags exporter, jute bags buying agency and jute bags sourcing agency in Bangladesh we offer following jute bags to our potential & established buyers.
Jute handicrafts are basically household and promotional jute products. Jute products are the main backup raw materials of jute handicrafts. Accessories of other materials are also used as backup materials to give such jute products eye catching look. These diversified jute products are known as jute handicrafts as most often many of these are made and crafted by hand. Jute handicrafts are widely used for promotion of corporate trademark, brand name, business name, business address, products and services, etc. Moreover jute handicrafts are widely used for decoration purposes as household products. As a jute handicrafts manufacturing service provider, jute handicrafts exporter, jute handicrafts buying agency and jute handicrafts sourcing agency in Bangladesh we offer our service for the following items.

What Is Jute?
Jute is a rain-fed crop with little need for fertilizer and pesticides. The jute fiber comes from the stem and ribbon (outer skin) of the jute plant. The fibers are first extracted by retting. The retting process consists of bundling jute stems together and immersing them in slow running water. There are two types of retting. These are stem and ribbon. After the retting process, stripping begins. In the stripping process, non-fibrous matter is scraped off, then the workers dig in and grab the fibers from within the jute stem.
Jute is one of the most affordable natural fibers and is second only to cotton in terms of production amount and diversifed consumption. It is a ligno-cellulosic fiber that is partially a textile fiber and partially wood. It falls into the bast fiber category (fiber collected from bast or skin of the plant) along with kenaf, industrial hemp, flax (linen), ramie, etc. The industrial term for jute fiber is raw jute. The fibers are off-white to brown, and 1 to 4 meters or 3 to 12 feet long.
Why Jute Is Better?
According to a research based article of encyclopedia, jute products produced from jute fiber are widely accepted and used for industrial purposes for the following reasons:
- Jute fiber is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and thus environmentally friendly.
- It is the cheapest vegetable fiber procured from the bast or skin of the plant's stem.
- It is the second most important vegetable fiber after cotton, in terms of usage, global consumption, production, and availability.
- It has high tensile strength, low extensibility, and ensures better breathability of fabrics. Thus, jute is very suitable in agricultural commodity bulk packaging.
- It helps to make best quality industrial yarn, fabric, net, and sacks.
- It is one of the most versatile natural fibers that has been used in raw materials for packaging, textiles, non-textile, construction, and agricultural sectors.
- Bulking of yarn results in a reduced breaking tenacity and an increased breaking extensibility when blended as a ternary blend.
- It has good insulating and antistatic properties, as well as low thermal conductivity and moderate moisture regain.
- It has acoustic insulating properties.
- It causes no skin irritations.
- It can be blended with other fibers, both synthetic and natural.
- It accepts cellulosic dye classes like natural, basic, vat, sulfur, reactive, and pigment dyes.
