Grain sacks made of jute and hessian carry our goods from one side of the world to the other. They are totally biodegradable and durable, so that they often have second and third lives as gardening and building sacks, before being used as compost and ultimately returning to the earth. Many are made in Asia and India, where their manufacture provides whole communities with a livelihood–from cultivation and farming, weaving, stitching and all ancillary stages of production and support such as housing, feeding and educating.

They are inexpensive and fun to use for upholstery, curtaining, odd chairs, garden cushions, even au naturel as curtains for the potting shed!
