Our bags are 100% jute, which is a strong plant grown locally in Bangladesh. The nature of this material means that the bags can withstand intense use and the test of time. And after a long and happy life, they can biodegrade on the compost.
Using jute is also a clever option when thinking about our carbon footprint and the climate impact of our products. Indeed, jute grows much quicker than cotton (it can be harvested every 4 to 6 months) and requires much less water. Studies suggest that jute is beneficial to the soil and air of the area, acting as a carbon sink.*
Sustainability is a long journey and we know we are miles away from perfect but choosing jute as the main material of our products, is a promising step towards a fairer, more sustainable method of production.
In a nutshell, these bags are the perfect option for a fun but mindful shopping alternative, as you can take them to cary your holiday essentials, your everyday go-to, or for shopping and travelling. They are a joyous stylish feature for your wardrobe or even as home decor.

Best known for the playful word handmade jute bags alongside homewares and embroidery, The Jacksons’ mission is to put smiles on faces. Our bags have introduced us to many new friends on tubes, beaches and planes – you never know where they are going to turn up and the conversations they will start.
Through our work with artisans in over 60 villages in Southern Bangladesh, we know that employment leads to independence, empowerment and status. This is why, for more than twelve years now, Louise and her team have been working relentlessly, designing products with a continual focus on the partnerships with our artisans and the environment.
All our jute bags and mats are made entirely from locally grown jute and are virtually carbon free. Indeed jute is one of those rare plants that can claim to have cleaned the air rather than polluted it!
We always have our friends and the planet at heart and we are striving to prove that mindful fashion is possible.
