A range of heavy jute fabrics either in plain or twill weaves manufactured by using coarse jute fibre in larger percentage than used for manufacturing tarpaulin, hessian or such light fabrics. Sacking refers to the coarser and heavier cloth, used primarily for sacks for packing materials that do not need special protection, but has higher weight.
Jute bagging material is in demand because of the openness of the weave, which allows air to circulate while protecting the contents.
The difference between hessian and sacking is in the quality of the cloth and the jute used for its production, the difference being primarily one of fineness, the former being made of finer grade jute, the latter of coarser qualities. Hessian can be available in cloth lengths, while the mills usually convert sacking cloth into bags and sacks.
The weave that produces diagonal patterns on the surface of the cloth. In the Jute industry, generally 2 x 1 simple twill weave is used.
