 Burlap in Use
 
Burlap has many applications. Its great strength and low cost make it the ideal textile for inner construction, for industrial packaging, and as the supporting fabric for many materials which lack the intrinsic functional strength required. The burlap bag affords low packaging cost for many commodities. This cost advantage stems mainly from the rugged strength of the burlap bag which can stand up to rough handling in transit - this often means additional economy as freedom from breakage reduces handling costs and avoids loss of contents from destruction of the bag.
