Our jute hessian vegetable storage sacks are the traditional way to store vegetables which need air circulation to keep them fresh. The sacks are a loose weave allowing air to easily permeate the fabric and the crops below. These large hessian bags really look the part and are perfect for storing potatoes, onions, apples and root vegetables. They are also perfect for collecting autumn leaves.

Jute sacks are a rough and tactile hessian fabric which have been used for centuries for fruit and vegetable storage, they are inexpensive and really work. It can be difficult to find hessian potato sacks for sale online so we're delighted to add these to our growing product range.

What Is Jute?

Jute is a long and soft vegetable fibre from the plants in the Corchorus genus. Raw jute is a bast fibre, meaning it is taken from the stem or skin of the plant, it is then spun into a coarse thread for textile applications. It is second only to cotton as the most widely used and cultivated vegetable fibre. The fibres themselves range in colour from almost white to a medium brown and are usually 1 to 4 metres long, making them one of the longest natural fibres. In appearance jute is soft with a golden shine, this is why it has the common nickname 'The Golden Fibre'.

 

Jute The Eco Friendly Fibre
Jute is completely natural, bio degradable and can be recycled too. The leaves of the plant are edible with a spinach like taste, and have been used for years as a soup thickener in the Middle East. Predominantly a rain fed crop, it does not require much fertilizer or pesticides. Unlike vegetable growing, Jute is easy on the soil and enriches it for the next crop. Most of the worlds production of jute happens in the Ganges Delta in India and Bangladesh, this is one of the most fertile regions in the world thanks to the warm climate and heavy rains and as such is nicknamed 'The Green Delta'. A typical crop takes approximately four months to grow.  Because of the wood like texture of the stem, it can also be used as firewood.


Uses Of Jute
Probably the most versatile of natural fibres, its uses are many and varied, these include:

Twine and rope
One of its most popular uses, it can be used on its own or blended with other fibres to make a strong rope or gardening twine.

Clothing
It can be dyed and blended with other fibres to make almost any type of clothing.

Curtains, carpets and furniture covers, linoleum backing
It is strong and durable with important antistatic properties.

Pulp and paper
Some see it as a better, more sustainable substitute for wood in the paper industry, its usage in the paper mills is increasing annually.

Panels and boards
Affordable and easily replaceable panels and boards for fencing or interior decorating, they have excellent sound and heat insulation.

Luggage
Jute makes very durable bags and suitcases, they can withstand heavy use and can hold more weight than most other bags.

Geo-textiles
It can be used as a landscaping fabric for weed control, soil erosion control and seed protection. Jute byproducts are used commonly in cosmetics, paint and medicines.

Hessian or burlap storage sacks
Primarily for vegetable storage. Jute fibre has low extensibility and high tensile strength, ensuring better breathability. This is why hessian or burlap sacks made from jute fibre are ideal for storing fresh fruits and vegetables.
