Handwoven tote bag embellished with colourful pompoms. These bags are made of jute which is a vegetable fibre, mostly grown in tropical countries like India and Bangladesh. It’s easy to produce, sturdy, and biodegradable so it’s the perfect material to use in handmade rugs and shopping bags. Jute fabric is the second most versatile fabric after cotton, and the second most common fibre grown and used across the world. But the best thing about jute is it uses way less water to produce, and the production of jute is much more eco-friendly than any other fabric.
