If you are for hessian fabric, you are in the right place. STOFF & STIL has a wide selection of different hessian fabrics in different qualities, colours and prints. We have both regular and coarse qualities. Hessian material is very good for tablecloths and decorations. You can also use it for a Christmas tree mat in December.
We have both plain and printed hessian suitable for all occasions like Christmas, Halloween and Easter. We have plain colours like sand coloured hessian and some with different prints.
You might think that hessian fabrics are only used for sacks, because of the sack material look. But the hessian has more than that function. It brings a rustic touch to your home because of its rough look. This durable and weaved fabric have been used for decoration for many years now.
For example for Easter, you can make baskets or placemats. It brings some kind of spring feeling to the home and brings the nature inside. The fabric is also perfect for Christmas because Santa Claus has a sack in this material. You can also make Christmas stockings to hang on the chimney. It gives a lovely look together with other fabrics also.
The hessian material is typically made from 100% jute and cannot be washed or ironed. Some of the hessian fabrics you find on our webshop do tolerate washing and ironing though. Some of the hessian fabrics are also made of cotton but the fabric will not be as strong and durable as the jute.
Hessian is easy to work with and because of the rustic look it doesn’t need to be perfectly sewn. Even kids can play with this fabric and be creative. Jute is a very strong fabric that can “breathe”.
It is also durable. Just make sure to hem the edges before washing.
What is hessian fabric used for?
Hessian fabric is most often used in the crafts world for creating rustic and rough décor items. The material is rough to the touch and prone to fraying, so it’s not a good material for making clothes with or upholstering furniture.
Like some of our polar fleece materials, hessian fabric is very popular around Christmas for creating seasonal goodies.
What is the difference between burlap and hessian?
Hessian is the name for the material in the UK, Australia and other countries around the world. In the USA, hessian is more commonly referred to as burlap. You can use both names interchangeably. You might find materials labelled as more than just hessian.
For example, at STOFF & STIL we have some organic hessian fabrics as well as coarse hessian fabrics. They will have different weights and tighter or loose weaves, but they are both made from jute and can be called hessian or burlap.
Is hessian environmentally friendly?
Yes, hessian is an environmentally friendly material. It is made from plant-based fibre, usually jute, which is sustainable and quick-growing. The material is completely biodegradable too!
