golden fibre

2009 is the international year for natural fibres. Jute is a natural and biodegradable material and is referred to as the golden fibre in Bangladesh. The Jute Diversification Promotion Centre (JDPC) organised an exhibition to showcase local products. We are interested in doing a weaving and product project with jute and we plan to establish contacts and hopefully visit a jute manufacturer soon.
