Jute fibre extracted from stem of two species (Corchorus olitorius Linn. and Corchorus
capsularis Linn.) is one of the major cash crops of India and is
used mainly for the production of coarser packaging material for packing food
grains, sugar and vegetables. In the present study, jute fibre has been used
for the development of high value utility products like school and lap-top
bags. For the production of these products specialty jute yarns have been
developed which has 27% higher work of rupture (i.e., higher load bearing
capacity) and more than 90% reduction in hairiness than the conventional jute
yarn. The fabrics developed with different weave structure for the fabrication
of the products when compared with ordinary jute fabric of similar
constructional parameters, show higher strength and elongation and drastic
reduction in bending modulus resulting in softer feel, which also helps in easy
folding of the fabric during stitching operation. Similar products may also be
developed from natural fibres similar to jute e.g., Hibiscus cannabinus Linn.
(Kenaf), Hibiscus sabdariffa Linn.
(Rossel), Cannabis sativa Linn. (Hemp) and Linum utitatissimum Linn.
