Finely handwoven cotton and jute blended yarn creates a sustainable sheer fabric with myriad uses. Used in the traditional way as a lightweight drape this apparently delicate fabric performs well, even in the sunny spots. Cotton is blended with jute to create a strong, lightweight fabric that is well starched with rice water, making it more versatile. Once washed there’s a softness to the fabric that still belies its strength. Many of our custom packaging ideas for a variety of goods and uses, are made with this 100% biodegradable fabric.

DESIGN OPTIONS: This fabric is skillfully handwoven on a 2 shaft loom and so plain weave is the base. The excitement starts after the fabric is woven as it takes both natural and azo-free dyes beautifully. Tie-dye and other resist techniques yield interesting results and can be applied to either the yardage or the finished scarves, drapes, etc. for a flowing finish.

As we are committed to the Slow Fashion Movement, some fabrics are kept in stock and others are handwoven to order. All however, are transported by sea to leave a significantly smaller carbon footprint than sending by air and to keep the cost down. But when needed, an air shipment can be arranged and we encourage you then to consider a carbon offset donation to your preferred organisation.
