Jute bags - natural, sustainable, plastic-free

Jute is the all-rounder among environmentally friendly packaging materials and a great alternative to many plastic items. Recyclable products are very trendy anyway, which is why jute has certainly been a household name for a long time. Unfortunately, the overcrowded jungle of offers makes it difficult for consumers to find high-quality items. So what do you have to consider when choosing the natural material and how can jute prove to be a real sham? Here you will find out the most important details about the power fiber and get many DIY ideas for using the durable bags.

How is jute made?

Jute a fast growing plant Jute is obtained from the conchorus plant.
Jute fibers are a fast-growing raw material obtained from the conchorus plant, a shrub of the mallow family. The plant reaches a height of up to 4 meters and grows an average of four months before harvest. The popular natural fiber is obtained from the middle, woody area of ​​the stem and consists mainly of cellulose and lignin. A distinction is made between the white and the much more robust brown jute fiber. Both impress with their longevity, are completely biodegradable and represent the second most important plant fiber after cotton.

The undemanding and easy-care jute plant does not need to be fertilized. In contrast to monocultures, it does not require the use of pesticides, since it is planted alternately with other crops. In addition, according to BUND, the cultivation of jute produces comparatively little greenhouse gas.

The harvested stalks are roasted for about 20 days. The jute fibers can then be removed by hand, washed, dried and spun into a durable yarn. Because of the golden yellow color and the slightly shimmering silky sheen, the long, soft jute fibers are also referred to as the "golden fibers".

  • Jute – the versatile natural fiber

    Surely you know the lovingly self-designed Christmas calendars made of jute bags or the painted jute bags for St. Nicholas. Completely free of harmful substances, natural bags made of jute are actually ideal for decorating the home and garden, but also for playing and handicrafts with children. But jute has many other advantages and uses.

    The robust fiber is extremely durable, flexible and dimensionally stable. The purely natural product is breathable, water-absorbent and antistatic. That is why the hard-wearing fabric is always used when longevity is desired. Jute fibers are also quite cheap to produce. The tear-resistant plant fiber is used to manufacture many everyday products, such as bags, pouches and ropes. The skin-friendly jute fibers can also be easily dyed, which is why they are ideal for the production of clothing. Jute is also being used more and more frequently as a durable material for furniture and home textiles, such as carpets, curtains and tea towels, and even as a natural insulating material.

    Green awareness - green action

    Jute is the strongest and most durable natural fiber there is! Bags or sacks made of jute can be reused countless times and can easily be washed by hand. Since natural jute is completely non-toxic, it can even be used without hesitation to store food. And do you know what the best thing about jute is? Jute fibers are completely biodegradable! So once your jute bags have had their day, you can easily dispose of them in the compost or in the organic waste bin, where they will rot within 2-3 growing seasons.

    But be careful! This only applies to products made from untreated and plastic-free jute! Are there really such big differences, you ask yourself? Unfortunately yes! Here, too, everything is not always as environmentally friendly as it seems at first glance.

    Natural vs chemically treated

    Jute made without mineral oil
    Jute fabric, also known as sacking, is a high-quality natural product made from untreated jute fibre. More and more often you will also find products made of treated jute on the market. For further processing, the fibers are then treated with oil containing minerals, also known as "Batschen". This makes the jute fiber softer and easier to process. The mineral oil is washed out again, but toxic residues and an unpleasant odor remain. As well as considerable environmental damage, because the mineral oils usually get into the soil unfiltered and thus also into the groundwater.

    Mineral oil is difficult for nature to biodegrade. It consists of a mixture of saturated mineral oil hydrocarbons (MOSH: Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons) and aromatic mineral oil hydrocarbons (MOAH: Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons). These substances are suspected of being highly carcinogenic and mutagenic. Incidentally, jute is also treated with caustic soda or liquid ammonia to improve the appearance and softness of the fabric, making it easier to mix with wool.

    All jute – or is it?!

    Pure jute is a very high-quality product and is now relatively rare. Many manufacturers use a cheaper mixture of jute and cotton instead. However, the latter is not quite as environmentally friendly in production as assumed. The plant needs a lot of fertilizer to even grow in large quantities. Due to its high susceptibility to diseases and pests, more plant toxins are used in its cultivation than any other agricultural crop. However, jute is also mixed with other natural and synthetic fibers and usually colored with chemical dyes.
    Real jute, on the other hand, is a purely natural product that completely dispenses with the addition of chemicals or other fibers. As a result, it retains the typical robust look and the slightly rough surface structure.

    A bag for all cases
