The Jute plant grows among other in India where our Jute carpets are produced. Jute is ready for harvest after four to six month and while it grows, it absorbs three times the amount of CO2 compared to a normal tree. When the plants are harvested, the roots and leaves are left to fertilize the ground for future plants. Further, the plant does not need pesticides or fertilizer as e.g. cotton needs to grow. To loosen the fiber on the jute plant, it needs to be soaked in water for a few days where after it easily can be scraped off. The remaining material is used as sawdust. Jute is 100 % biodegradable.
