Stylish Multi-purpose Heavy Duty Market Tote Jute Bag with Leather Handle 100% Biodegradable
he multi-purpose stylish Jute Market tote Bag is an unique attractive
and practical market tote being produced in Bangladesh under
MaksActiveWear social business program, a concept first pioneered by
Nobel Laureate (2006 for Peace) Dr. Muhammad Yunus. The market bag is
made of natural golden jute fiber (100% biodegradable and recyclable)
harvested in Bangladesh and has a waterproof lining. The natural 100%
vegetable tanned leather straps are secured with antique nickel rivets
making the bag strong enough to carry produce and canned goods from the
market to your kitchen pantry.
Jute is a rain-fed crop (the young leaves are also edible) that doesn't
need much in the way of fertilizer or pesticides. Production is
concentrated around the Ganges delta region of Bangladesh and India
where the warm, wet climate during the monsoon season provides ideal
growing conditions. It takes between four and six months for the plants
reach a height of around 12 feet (3.5m) when they are harvested. The
harvested stems are then tied together and soaked in water to soften
before being stripped of their fibers. The thread created from jute is
quite strong and has exceptional insulating properties, low thermal
conductivity, and antistatic characteristics.
