FJF Jute Fabric
Jute can provide a considerable amount of diversified products. Among those products, Fine Jute Fabric belongs to the most noble bunch. Fine Jute Fabric or FJF is a textile made from jute plants. Fiber from jute is one of the longest natural textile fibers extracted. Although jute is not very popular in Western world, it is very popular in Indian subcontinent. Here in Oporajeo, we use this fabric to produce bags and other diversified jute-based products.
There are several jute mills in Bangladesh that collect raw jute and transform it into fabric. Among them, Janata Jute Mill is one of the oldest private jute mills in Bangladesh. Since 1967, they have been working with jute-based fabric. Both nationally and internationally, they are a well-renowned jute mill popular for their integrated high quality service as a compliance. It is believed that they are the producers of the best FJF in Bangladesh. Oporajeo is a leading jute-goods exporter from Bangladesh. We collect 13*13, 15*15, 18*18 FJF from Janata Jute Mill.
Janata Jute Mill produces jute fabric through vegetable oil treatment. These fabrics are also known as VOT (Vegetable Oil Treated) fabric. This kind of fabric is highly eco friendly as it is considered to be ‘food grade’. Currently, food carrying bags made from these materials are being very popular only because of its safe nature in the environment. The whole procedure of making this fabric is fully natural. No chemicals are used in any of the steps of producing these high-end vegetable oil treated FJFs.
Oporajeo ensures the quality of its goods as well as our responsibility towards nature. This is why we are committed to using the best eco friendly FJF available in Bangladesh.
Dyeing on Jute
The process of applying color to fiber stock, yarn or fabric is called dyeing. Dyeing is a method which imparts beauty to the textile by applying various colors and their shades on to a fabric. Dyeing can be done at any stage of the manufacturing of textile- fiber, yarn, fabric or a finished textile product including garments and apparels. The property of color fastness depends upon two factors- selection of proper dye according to the textile material to be dyed and selection of the method for dyeing the fiber, yarn or fabric. There are two major types of dyes – natural and synthetic dyes. The natural dyes are extracted from natural substances such as plants, animals, or minerals. Synthetic dyes are made in a laboratory. Chemicals are synthesized for making synthetic dyes. Some of the synthetic dyes contain metals too.
Both fabric dyeing and yarn dyeing are of similar quality with a difference in process. Yarn dyeing is dyeing before the fabric is woven. On the other hand, fabric dyeing happens after having a colourless end product. So, fabric dyeing ensures uniformity of color and is good for T-shirts. But for the other productions, yarn dyeing is a more suitable option.Thinking industrial, yarn dyeing costs more and takes more time. But as the finishing is perfect, it is worth waiting for.
Oporajeo uses dyed jute from Janata Jute Mills, one of the biggest producers of jute fabric in Bangladesh. Yarn dyeing method is used to attain the best quality and to ensure the grain line of our fabric is perfect. The best machine is used to dye these yarns. So, we can dye the fabric in any penton colour. Also, there is zero discharge ETP plant in the mill, so the environment is completely safe during the dyeing process. We follow international standards of dyeing and abstain from using any harmful chemical including chrome.
Lamination on Jute
Jute gained more popularity worldwide because it has such advantages like good strength, low density, widespread availability, low cost and biodegradability. But jute also has a disadvantage. The fabric is not strong and rigid enough to hold a certain shape. It needs to go through a Lamination process to completely hold its shape. So, the technology of laminated jute was invented. Laminated Jute looks exactly like Raw Jute on the outside and has an additional thin layer of LDP, LDPE, PP or PU applied to the inside to stiffen and protect the natural fibres. The lamination creates a structured, solid, long-lasting effect on the jute. So, it can be shaped into the favorite product. When times come to discard the product, the layer can be removed which leaves a completely biodegradable Jute bag.
Oporajeo can apply both heat-press and meltdown system to complete the lamination. As we use LDP, LDPE, PP and PU to laminate jute fabric, the lamination is much more precise. We can laminate even in 60-140 ml micron. The lamination can also be colourful. Heat press doesn’t offer extra colour in the lamination process but the melt down system does. Colourful lamination can be attained by using meltdown lamination.
Jute is the second largest natural source of fiber that produces yarn and fabric. The first one is cotton. Although, jute is getting more and more popular because of its eco-friendly nature. But it is yet to be regarded as a common option as apparel. To make jute more available in the reach of mass consumers, technology blessed us with blended jute. This specially made fabric is a mixture of jute and cotton. It is more accepted as apparel and slightly more available for mass people.
We produce Cotton and Jute mixed fabric, namely jute cotton from Nakshi Bangla Ecotex Factory. Nakshi Bangla is a veteran and renowned institution for producing jute fabric. We can provide jute cotton of different designs, GSM and colour. As per customer’s demand we can dye any colour in this fabric. We also produce jute cotton using completely organic cotton. This fabric can be made in up to 38 patterns such as Twil, Panama, Jacquard, Dog Tooth and Sitting.
Cotton is the largest source of natural fiber. It is a soft and fluffy fiber that grows around the seeds of the cotton plants. The fiber is almost pure cellulose. Under natural conditions, the cotton bolls will increase the dispersal of the seeds. The fiber is most often spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile. The use of cotton for fabric is known to date to prehistoric times. Although cultivated since antiquity, it was the invention of the cotton gin that lowered the cost of production that led to its widespread use, and it is the most widely used natural fiber cloth in clothing today.
Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
We use organic, BIC, recycled and regular cotton fabrics. We can collect and provide cotton fabric of any colour, GSM,weaving and pattern. We keep this in mind that our cotton materials are collected from OEKO-TEX certified textile mills.
6Lbs/2ply Jute Fabric
6lbs/2ply jute fabric is one of the finest and strongest forms of jute fabric. We collect this high-quality fabric from Sonali Jute Industries. In the whole world,only Sonali Jute Industries can produce this kind of end-product. This premium fabric can be dyed in any colour of our choice. As it is treated in the time of pre-weaving, it does not contain any extra fiber.
Oporajeo, as an established jute goods exporter, believes that the environment is facing more and more pollution as the industrialization continues to grow. But as the institution opposes this kind of industrial practice, Oporajeo has an environment friendly policy. It is an honor for Oporajeo to help our environment even by a little. Every year, the world is getting more polluted because of the tannery industries. Water pollution near the riverside tanneries is so cruel that rivers can die due to this heavy pollution. In Bangladesh, Shitalakkha and Buriganga rivers are two prime examples of this kind of pollution. The river water pollutes and puts an impact on its surrounding lives. Improper waste-management, massive use of harmful chemicals are the main reasons for pollution. So,Oporajeo avoids all those and goes for a better solution in vegetable dyed leather. All leather goods used and produced by Oporajeo are vegetable tanned with proper waste management. They are all natural, so free from harmful chemicals and have a perfect blend with nature. We can also supply LWG certified leather on customer demand.
The accessories we use in Oporajeo factory are mostly from YKK company. Sometimes, we collect it directly from China or get them delivered in Bangladesh. Accessories from YKK are of high quality and it allows us to increase our productivity.
Apart from YKK, we also collect some accessories from high-standard international companies that are ready to export their quality products.

Handloom Jute Fabric
The history and legends of Bangladeshi Handloom fabric dates back to prehistoric times. The environment and humidity allows the people to loom fabrics from different fibers by tradition. Tangail, a four hour ride from Dhaka the capital of Bangladesh is a popular place for the weavers. We have 20 weavers in our network who can make hand loomed jute fabric. The fabric is produced in semi-automated or waist-pulling machines by these weavers.
