Burlap, it is also called hessian cloth or sack fabric, is an evenweave fabric with a rustic, warm and natural look. It is usually made from skin of the jute plant or sisal fibres and used to make sacks and bags.

Although, hessian has been historically produced as a coarse fabric, today it is also used as an eco-friendly material for bags, rugs, cushions, place mats, table runners and other products. 

The texture, color and especially the contrast between the raw surface and the delicate embroidery are only some of the features that have inspired many contemporary embroiderers.
