What is Jute?
Jute is a natural vegetable fibre from the bark of the white Jute plant, or Corchorus Capsularis. Jute is easy to grow, harvest and weave and its fibres make a sturdy yet biodegradable fabric.
In fact, jute is the second most versatile fabric after cotton, and the second most common fibre grown and used all across the world. But the best thing about jute is it uses less water than other fabrics during production, and the production of jute is more eco-friendly than any other fabric. Jute thrives on rainwater, and with enough water (like in the monsoon regions of India), there's little need for fertiliser to help it along, nor does it need pesticides.
Jute is a gorgeous golden-brown colour, so it's sometimes called Golden Fibre. It is light, has a shimmery shine to it, and has a flexibility and durability unlike other fibres.
By combining Jute and Organic Cotton grown in similar regions we create a traditional yet luxurious and strong natural weave that makes our tote bags so unique.

We are all keepers of the earth.
This bag has internal pockets (great for storing extra string bags) it's very well made, looks great, washable and packs groceries, fruit and veg so much better than any other bag I have used so far. I received it from Hubby for Christmas (among other things) such a practical gift for anyone and everyone as a beach bag, grocery bag, travel bag or to take to a farmers market. I love it and will be ordering more for friends and family.
Thank you so much we are glad you love it as much as we do.
Wishing you peace, wonder and joy
The Keeper Team
For Xmas I received the Eddie Tote bag, which I love so much as it is beautifully and ethically made, using certified organic cotton. I can’t wait to head to the markets and fill it up with organic fruit & veg. I will get a lot of use out of my much loved bag so it is definitely a “Keeper”
