What exactly are Jute and Seagrass?
Both Jute and Seagrass are a fantastic natural and eco-friendly resource
Jute plants are easy to grow, have a high yield per acre and, unlike cotton, have little need for pesticides and fertilisers. Jute grows during the rainy season in Bangladesh which is from June to October. The fibres lie beneath the bark around the woody core. To extract the fibre, the jute bundles are submersed in water and left for a few days until the fibres come loose and are ready for stripping from the stalk, then washed and dried. Jute plants help to clean the air. During growth they take in three times more CO2 than the average tree, converting this CO2 into oxygen. Jute is 100% biodegradable.

Seagrass is a renewable, sustainable and biodegradable material. Seagrasses grow very quickly in shallow saltwater along coastlines and rivers. Once mature the grasses are cut by hand and dried in the sun, then hand twisted and woven.

For larger storage we also use the standard Baskets and Bowls range, namely the Seagrass and Jute 'Fruit Basket' - great for light items such as the Grimms Large buttons, Holztiger or Ostheimer wooden animals and more.
