Abstract: The golden jute fibre, traditionally used for the production of coarse packaging materials, is now being used in different diversified areas, e.g. home-textiles, auto-textiles, etc. The production of decorative jute fabric with ornamental effect needs special attention so far the construction parameters of handloom are concerned as the availability of such type of handloom producing jute based decorative fabrics with ornamental effect using jute yarn in both warp and weft is scanty. In the paper, the problems faced during the production of jute based decorative fabrics in traditional cotton handloom with jacquard shedding arrangement and development of a handloom with jacquard shedding arrangement for trouble free weaving of any type of jute based decorative fabric with ornamental effect has been reported. The handloom developed for the production of jute fabric can also be used for weaving traditional cotton fabric.
