Why Jute


Jute dicotyledenous fibre-yielding plant of the genus corchorus, order tiliaceae. Jute was once known as the golden fibre of Bangladesh, since it was the most important cash crop for the country. Jute fibre is produced mainly from two commercially important species, namely white jute (corchours capsularis), and tossa jute (corchorus olitorius). The centre of origin of white jute is said to be Indo-Burma including south china, and that of tossa africa. The word jute is probably coined from the word jhuta or jota, an orrisan word. However, the use of jutta potta cloth was mentioned both in the Bible and Monushanghita-Mahabharat. This indicates the ancient uses of jute materials by the people of these areas. There is evidence of the trade of jute cloth in the 16th century. Ain-i-akbari (1590) mentions sackcloth originating from Bengal. Jute grows under wide variation of climatic conditions and stress of tropic and subtropics.
