“Sack of Ideas”

26 Apr

Today I’m going to change it up.

I’m going textile. Not just any type of textile.

Specifically “BURLAP“.

What I love about burlap is that it’s a textile fibre that is actually part wood.

Made from the Jute Plant and Sisal Fibres.

ImageImageBURLAP is probably one of the least expensive textile crops in the world and offers many cultures versatility whether it be used as food, rope, fabrics or packaging.

The fact that BURLAP is an eco friendly natural green material is creatively inspiring to me.

Check out some of these re-purposed creations.

Many of these ideas can be found on etsy and other online sources.

You can source burlap bags for your next burlap project from coffee or potatoes.
