Jute Silk is one such type of saree made by Jute Fibers. It is first removed from the plant and then scrapped to remove foreign fibers and treated with chemicals to make it soft and smooth. Jute sarees are unique because of their color and texture. Usually, jute is mixed with other materials to improve the appearance, durability and washability of the saree.

No, jute silk is not silk and the material is not from animals. Instead, it mainly comes from the white jute plant which can be grown in different climates. Also, there is a Tossa jute plant which would be the better of the two plants for the fabric. However, this second plant is more difficult to grow. When it comes to producing this material, jute is the second most fiber produced from the plant on this planet. Just behind the cotton.
