Each one of our fabrics is unique but special in their own way. As with any minimally processed fabric, there will be slight variations in color due to differences in growing conditions from harvest to harvest. Burlap is a fabric made from the jute plant. Jute has a fast growing cycle which increases its renewability. There is almost no need for pesticides and herbicides in cultivating jute. Burlap is a more rustic fiber and initially sheds fibers. As with hemp, jute is a hand woven fabric which has variations in the finish adding to burlap's shabby chic appeal and rustic charm. All of our fabrics in this collection are 100% biodegradable.
