What is hessian?
Hessian is a natural fabric made from the Jute plant or sisal fibres. It is widely used in ropes, sacking, nets and décor. The hessian we supply is manufactured in India.
How do I cut it?
With a sharp pair of scissors. Note, it is a woven fabric, not knitted and will fray.
How long will it last?
It all depends on the application but it is a hard wearing material known to withstand harsh conditions. Hessian is not a UV stabilised product and is not designed for long term outdoor uses such as screening for privacy.
Is it waterproof?
What colours does it come in?
14oz comes in Natural colour only. 18oz comes in Natural Colour, Aqua, Blue, Black, Gold, Lime, Orange, Pink or Yellow. Note, although we have images of Purple this colour has in fact now been discontinued.
How long until you can ship me a roll?
We hold stock of natural 14 and 18oz Hessian in Natural colour and can ship it out the same or next day depending on what time you place your order. We usually need to order our coloured hessian in which can take up to 2 weeks.
Can I pick it up?
Of course. We always recommend calling ahead so that we can have your order picked and ready for collection.
I’m in regional Australia, how do I get it?
