Jute - our Reusable Future

Jute Bags are fast becoming the path forward in our reusable future.

Although they are bigger & heavier than most of the alternatives.  The small amount of additional fuel for transportation is quickly offset by the vast number of benefits offered in other areas.

Jute is a 100% natural fibre & there's no need for any additional man-made ingredients.

Jute is grown using similar methods to that of organic farming where crops are rotated seasonally & there are no herbicides or pesticides used.

Jute has no need for genetic modification.  It's a very hardy plant that grows to harvestable maturity in 4-6 months.

The whole Jute plant is used.  The inner section is used to create the Jute fibres for making products like bags, twine/rope, paper, shoes, carpet backing.  Then the outer section & leaves are used as firewood.

Harvest is between July & October with the primary growing region in the Bengal area (India & Bangladesh).  There are other regions producing Jute - such as China & Brazil.

Jute is the smart choice for a range of reasons.

Is Fast Good?

In our business - as with almost all businesses - mistakes cost money.

No matter what error has occurred, it's going to cost money (or time... and time is money, so they say).

So how does the relate to bags?

First, there are the time pressures of events, conferences and meetings.  If you miss the date, well... you might as well toss the lot away.

Second is print and brand accuracy.  If you get the printing wrong or the branding is not correct (colour, proportions, position or sizes) the impact could almost certainly cost money or at the very least create some lost presence or perhaps branding confusion.

Third is quality and accuracy of production.  Making sure that the end product will last is of utmost importance. Everyone wants quality and everyone wants a good image.  So it's worth spending a bit more time on getting things right and making sure the materials are of sustainable quality.

Getting these few things right is extremely important in our business because You have entrusted us with your deadlines, brand and quality.

We take the steps to make sure we get it right.
