Versatile Cotton – Part 1 !!!!!!!

Cotton simply put is a fluffy staple fiber.  It may sound simple, but it is indeed an enormously huge topic.  Its history dates back to pre-historic times. It is often claimed that fragments of cotton fabric dated 5000 B.C. have been excavated from Mexico and Ancient India or Indus Valley Civilization. It has many feathers in its cap – Natural Fibre, Breathable Textile, Recyclable etc

Most of all, it is very versatile! It is used in textile industry for clothing. It is also used in manufacturing of fishing nets and coffee filters. It finds its place in food industry as Cottonseed oil. It has also retained its place in stationery industry through its use in creation of cotton paper and book binding.

At Conserve India, we have also made the best use of this feature of cotton –  “versatility”

Jute – the golden fibre !!!!!!!

Jute, the golden fiber is one of the most versatile natural fibers. A specialty of jute is that it can be used independently or blended with so many other materials including but not limited to cotton. All this makes this fiber a real designers delight.

There is one more reason to embrace jute. It is 100% bio-degradable, recyclable and environmental friendly.

And, saving the best for the last, jute is predominantly a South Asian produce.  India and Bangladesh accounts for 95% of world’s production!

At Conserve India, we celebrate jute through our designs. One such product is this one below – Jute and Cotton Thread Pouch
