Jute, known as "golden thread" in Bangladesh, is the first raw material for Motherhouse. On our 15th Anniversary, we have taken the challenge to develop new Jute fabric. By offering a simplistic backpack shape with plain knitting pattern from our lightweight jute, we expect to bring possibilities of this new sensation.
The History of Our Jute bags
The history of Motherhouse began when our CEO and Chief Designer, Eriko Yamaguchi,
encountered Jute while she was studying in Bangladesh.
For the next 15 years,
we have continuously challenged ourselves to develop various Jute products to help realize its full potential.
What is Jute?
Jute is known as "golden thread" in Bangladesh.
It is a natural fiber extracted from the stems of plants grown in tropical and subtropical zones and has been used for handicrafts in Bengal since ancient times.
It is an eco-friendly material and has a natural, enjoyable texture.
