Jute Bags Wholesale
We travelled to India in 2018 as tourists and we experienced a diverse country of culture, heritage and tradition. Having the second highest country population in the world it is packed full of different languages, values and religions unlike anywhere else in the world. It is a country that produces many talented and industrious people from those on the land to craftsmen and technicians in IT and other valuable pursuits.
While travelling we saw many examples of locally made textiles and realized that India is a prolific producer of some of the world’s finest textiles such as organic cotton linen, towels, throws and rugs. Another item that caught our eye was the many jute baskets products that were being produced and it got us to thinking that jute bags could make a valuable addition to our range. If we were able to offer wholesale jute bags online, particularly jute baskets wholesale it would add a whole new dimension to our range. Further to this as the vast majority of the harvesting and manufacturing process is performed in a rural environment it sat well with our ethos helping to sustain people at a local village level.
India is the largest producer of Jute and supplies more than 50% of the world’s jute. Generally sown March to May the Jute. After 90-100 days the plants attain desired height of 2.5 to 4 metres. The plants are cut by sickle close to the ground and the stems are made into bundles and left on the field for 3-4 days. These bundles are then steeped in water and the “retting” process begins where the jute fibres are loosened and separated from the woody stalk. These fibres are then washed thoroughly in clean water, dried in the sun and made into bundles ready for sending to Jute mills for manufacturing a variety of products such as hessian cloth, sacking cloth, yarn, carpet backing, bags, canvas, mats and floor coverings.
New supplier – great jute products!
We had some initial thoughts before travelling to India about the possibility of securing a supplier and then offering jute bags wholesale in Australia. We had made some enquiries online and had the name of a supplier who we believed could satisfy our needs. While in Delhi we made contact and visited the supplier’s base on the outskirts of Delhi. We had very fruitful discussions examined samples and decided on various colours and designs. Once back in Australia we firmed up the order and the rest is history!
Putting in the time and effort to visit and discuss our needs with the local supplier was all worth the effort as we are now able to offer the Australian public jute bags online. Why buy your jute bags from us?
