Come spring and summer we see jute popping up everywhere! In fashion and home decor it adds the perfect earthy touch. But what do we really know about this fiber that makes a resurgence every season?
There’s a reason why this material is so earthy and natural. It’s a vegetable fiber! The strong fibrous strings of certain plants are spun together into long course threads.
Jute is easy to create and can be used to a number of ways, which is why it’s also very affordable.
Popular uses of this plant include weaving it into burlap, using it as a textured rug, or trimming a pair of your favorite summer shoes, espadrilles!
How will you be using jute this season? For home decor, fashion, or something else entirely?
