Covering fabrics, stuffings and other materials used in upholstering are collectively termed as upholstery. Jute is being increasingly used as a major component in upholstery. Blended jute upholstery peps up any setting and brings in an ethno-chic yet casually contemporary look to it.
Silky lustre, high tensile strength, low extensibility, considerable heat and fire resistance, long staple length and inexpensive nature are the characteristics of jute that has immense designer potentials. Manufacturers and exporters have discovered the high versatility of the fiber, which can be easily combined with other materials.
