Jute & hessian packaging was the dominant product prior to the advent of plastics. The jute plant from which the fibre is derived is 100% natural and 100% biodegradable. Colquhoun’s import & stock a range of bags and fabrics made from jute and we have been involved in this style of packaging for over 100 years. The jute fibre can have different colours from a very light beige through to brown. Some of the main uses for jute & hessian bags are for the packaging of potatoes, oysters, seed & grain, cotton, coffee and even sack races.
