Long Term Benefits
Jute is a very hardwearing fibre that is found in the stem of the jute plant. It’s an easy-to-grow plant that requires very little fertiliser, pesticides or water and is ready to harvest after only 120 days. The jute fibre is often used for ropes and sacks but is also known for its silky-smooth lustre and can be spun into finer threads which are then woven. In our range we often use woven jute for items like curtains, rugs and furniture.
Our TJILLEVIPS baskets are made of jute by women in the Indian countryside. It’s handicraft that contributes to more equality and better opportunities for women and their families.
Our TJILLEVIPS baskets are made of jute – a versatile plant fibre that can be shaped into beautiful and functional objects. The jute industry is traditionally male-dominated, but one of our suppliers suggested hiring women to make the baskets. An initiative that contributes to more equality and creates more opportunities for women and their families.
