Jute Paper
ecofriendly jute paper
Jute paper is a wonderful and unique example of a tree free paper it is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and therefore environmentally friendly. Jute is a hardy, rain-fed crop with little need for fertilizer or pesticides, good for the land. It is typically grown as an off-season crop that supplements growers’ income, good for farming communities


The Making Of Jute Paper

The jute is sorted by hand to remove unwanted materials and dust.
The sorted material is then chopped into small pieces.
Dyes and sometimes other materials are added to the paper
The pulp is then diluted in water and put in a vat.
Using a mold and a deckle the wet pulp is transferred on to a felt sheet building up a stack of interleaved sheets which are left to dry
When the sheet is completely dried the result is a beautiful, eco friendly jute paper from which jute journals and notebooks are manufactured.
