Abstract

India has large resources of natural fibers such as Banana, Sisal, Korai grass, Talipot, Palm leaf, Coconut, Pineapple, Golden grass, Jute, and Sabai among others. In the past, trade of the village folK depended on harvesting fibers grown in their villages. They spun or twisted yarn into ropes and sold them in villages or town markets. However with time, the emphasis was shifted to cotton and then during the post-independent era, silk and -jute became the new wonder fibers. jute is long, soft, and shiny it is one of nature’s strongest vegetable fibers. The fibers are also woven into curtains, chair coverings, carpets, area rugs, hessian cloth, and backing for linoleum. The main objective is to make jute fiber from natural materials. To make jute roped room dividers, doors, and windows with supporting cane. Cane boxes were custom built with evenly spaced rope sized holes drilled through the top and bottom. Precut sections of rope were strung through the top and tied off at the bottom, allowing for the interior knot to hold the rope in place and taut. Jute rope can be the key to the design. Most of the women who belong to the socio-economically backward sections of the society are engaged in natural fiber weaving to produce objects for daily use. It is one of the cheapest and the strongest of all-natural fibers and is considered as fiber of the future. It has no adverse effect on the human body and Mother Nature as a whole.
