Looking to bring natural organic elements into your home? Perhaps a rustic industrial look? Use a textured neutral like BURLAP! This fabric adds warmth and comfort. Compliments industrial metals, lucite and bright colors. Due to popularity in the design industry, the fibers from the “Jute Plant” are now refined through an ecofriendly process to be softer.
Outside of the United States, burlap is referred to as ‘Hessian’. Durable enough to transport coffee beans and withstand heavy use in your home. First exported from India in the 19th century, burlap has become a pratical and fashionable fabric in interior design.
Not all Burlap is rough and uncomfortable! We promise! It is amazing how traditional yet progressive the production of this fabric has transitioned over the centuries. Most burlap is blended with linen for softness. Linen comes from flax which is another organic material used since ancient Egyptian times. Cotton is more elastic but linen is stronger.
