Jute – The Ancient Golden Fiber. This carbon dioxide neutral and 100% biodegradable fiber comes from the jute plant growing tall in the Indian monsoon climate. The rain fed crop produces, after a simple process, beautifully shiny long fibers ranging in colour from silky off-white to golden brown.
Watered by the abundant rainfall, jute requires virtually no fertilizers or pesticides. At Iding&James we use the versatile jute fibers pure or mixed with silk, cotton or wool in our textiles for the beautiful characteristics of this humble plant. It is strong, durable, colour and light fast. It protects against UV rays, insulates from sound and temperature and has antistatic properties. We use both power loom and hand loom in our manufacturing of carpets, cushion covers, table runners and tablets. Talk to us about what we can do to integrate jute in your product ideas to make them more sustainable.
Chindi-lisiously versatile – and talking about recycled materials - our Chindi rag rug collection deserves a chapter all of their own. These beautiful rugs are handwoven on pit looms – using both left over tailor cutting and left over mill made cutting to give intrinsic weave and texture to the rugs. All leftovers of cotton, polyester and silk blended fabric cuts are produced with GRS certification and with Reach certified chemicals.
Jute, leather and suede, denim, paper, chenille mixes give colour and texture inspired by Scandinavian simplicity or a recycled colour statement on your floor - you choose from hundreds of patterns and details when you work with our manufacturers.

If you are looking for more artisanal approach to prints and patterns let us show you our selection of fabrics made in Rajasthani towns of Sanganer or Bagru. Printing workshops passed down through generations use traditional hand carved wood blocks dipped in dye. The colours and patterns slowly grow on the tightly stretched fabric, through the meticulously pressede ‘gudh’ background block, overlaid by the ‘rehk’ outline block and the final ‘datta’ filler block.
