Burlap Bags for Gardening, Farming, Landscaping and SO Much More!!

Did you know burlap bags are the ultimate 21st century material - biodegradable, food-grade, recycled/recyclable, etc.

Burlap bags are used in countless numbers of industries - farming, gardening, interior design, landscaping, construction, trucking, manufacturing, seafood cold storage, and the list goes on.

Our recycled burlap bags are a feel good-alternative to using plastics and other man-made materials and provide the same level of reliability and performance.

  • Burlap (aka "jute") fabric lets water, oxygen, and nutrients through to the soil, but thoroughly blocks weeds
  • It protects topsoil and tender plant roots from erosion and helps retain warmth in the winter and moisture in the summer
  • The rough surface looks natural and holds any type of mulch well - both above (for even better weedblocking) or below (for sheet mulching and soil-building)
  • It holds moisture and insulates
  • Unlike plastics, burlap is a natural material that breaks down over several years, leaving no trace
  • Food-grade fabric is great for vegetable gardens
  • A burlap bag represents a locally recycled, sustainable, natural product

Other uses for our burlap bags abound!

  • As a simple, low-cost "container garden" for growing mushrooms, tomatoes, potatoes, and squashes (much lighter, more breathable, and less expensive than whiskey barrels!)
  • As "earth bags", to construct natural, durable green buildings using on-site soil
  • As storage, harvest, or transport bags for of anything needing strong protection with good air circulation
  • As a natural, strong, decorative fabric for wall coverings, curtains, and rug backing
  • As a moisture-conserving cover to protect wet concrete, allowing it to cure perfectly
  • Along with ti leaves, burlap is the essential material to make an imu pit for your Hawaiian Luau!
