Jute (The Golden Fibre)
Jute is a long, soft, shiny vegetable fiber that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. It is also used for food; The Book of Job, in the King James translation of the Hebrew Bible, mentions this vegetable potherb as “mallow, giving rise to the term Jew’s Mallow. Jute was known to be used for making textiles since the 3rd millennium BC. Jute fiber is a complex mixture of chemical compounds that are built up by a natural process (photosynthesis) during the growth of the fiber in the plant stem. Jute fibers are 100% biodegradable and recyclable materials, i.e., environmentally friendly and organic. Jute fibers have good insulating and antistatic properties, as well as low thermal conductivity and acoustic energies with moderate moisture regain and no skin irritations.
Jute stem has very high volume of cellulose that can be procured within 4-6 months, and hence it also can save the forest and of the world. Jute is the most environment-friendly fiber starting from the seed to fiber, as the old fibers can be recycled more than once.

Natural and Eco-friendly:Cork is a natural raw material that is 100% biodegradable, recyclable and renewable. Cork is harvested by stripping the bark of the cork oak tree. Only about 50% of the bark is removed at the time of harvesting and can be harvested every 9 years until it is around 200 years old and as the tree regrows its bark it absorbs up to 2 times more CO2 from the air providing a net positive effect towards combating global warming. Any cork waste from production is reused and ground to make other cork products.
Self-Cleaning and Sanitary: Cork is naturally antimicrobial. It contains compounds called phenolics which kills bacteria and fungus. Cork secretes an oil called suberin when it is wet that not only creates a grippy surface, but also inhibits growth of fungi, bacteria, and mold. This makes cork surfaces resistant to the growth and colonization of these organisms and clean and free from the odour of perspiration. It is ideal for people prone to allergic reactions. Cork does not absorb dust, so is ideal for use by people who suffer from allergies or asthma.
Elastic and Resilient: The key to cork’s anti-static, water-resistant, & resilient properties is its honeycomb cell structure. Each cell is a 14-sided polyhedron filled with air with an extremely strong and flexible membrane that is waterproof and airtight. The cork cell membranes are extremely flexible, compressible and elastic, so it will always tend to return to its original shape, no matter what sort of pressure it is put under. This cell structure also naturally insulates both hot and cold. In its natural state, cork is flame resistant, and these trees have a history of being sole survivors in natural forest fires due to their nearly impermeable outer protection system.
Light: It has such strong watertight cell membranes means that it will not absorb water and gain density/mass in humid conditions.
Impermeable: Cork has a magic chemical in its cell membrane that makes it completely impermeable to liquids and gases. This chemical is a mixture of fatty acids and heavy organic alcohol called “suberin” which, in addition to, rendering cork impermeable also stops it from rotting or degrading over time.
Durable: Cork is extremely durable and has a high friction coefficient, so a cork yoga mat will survive repeated usage even in extreme conditions.
