Burlap is a favorite amongst crafters because of its rugged, natural look and historical ties. Often used in carrying sacks for produce and sundry goods in the olden days, burlap is often implemented in craft projects to call to mind the simpler times or lend an attractive quaintness. The fabric itself is coarse to the touch, consisting of a single weave of jute or other fiber. Because of its rough texture, this material is best left for the crafter of the household! Beverly’s online fabric store offers several pre-woven burlap textile in addition to spools of jute rope. This way, you can keep a store of pre-woven burlap fabrics with your other craft materials and use the jute rope as an accent!
