About Jute
 
Jute is a natural fiber and called " Golden Fiber" for its luster and color like gold. It was first found on the African coast of the Mediterranean . It is very difficult to trace out the exact period of the first appearance or growth of this jute plant in Indo- Bangla-Pak sub - continent. It is, however, understood that jute was being cultivated on the soil of Bangladesh from the very ancient time and the people of low income group of Bangladesh used to wear a kind of cloth made of jute fiber. Jute flourished in Bangladesh as an important cottage industry through out the country.  
The export of hand woven jute clothes began in the year 1805. But the jute cottage industry began to vanish gradually from Bangladesh like world famous Muslin of Dhaka due to discouragement and other political reasons.

It was Europe which nurtured jute to gain international stature. Europe's requirement moved the wheels of jute industry in this area. And till today, it plays a significant role in shaping the nature of Bangladesh jute industry. 

World's finest and best quality jute grows in different regions of Bangladesh due to presence of favorable natural climatic conditions and alluvial soil. So far, about 40 species of jute have been found, out of which only two species have got it's main real commercial value as well as industrial use.
