The List of Products We Offer

At R.L. Pritchard & Co., Inc., we carry a variety of jute products & can customize to your specifications.


Jute Felt

Jute Felt is comprised of matted, compressed jute fibers. It is 100% biodegradable and degrades to form humus, without leaving harmful residue traces. Jute Felt is being increasingly used as an industrial product, for insulation and acoustic. The product insulates the soil against extreme temperatures and hence helps in the survival of plants. The Jute Felt absorbs moisture, up to 5 times its own weight and therefore provides water to plants during dry periods.

Jute Felt also plays an important role in every aspect of landscape design. Felt can be used to block weeds and sunlight, while allowing water and fertilizers to pass through. When laying mulch, Jute Felt can hold it in place, even on steep slopes.

R.L. Pritchard & Company

Jute felt is useful in promotion of vegetation in a difficult environment. Jute Felts are excellent insulators and protect trees from extreme weather. These soak moisture and release it to the tree in drier times. Jute Felt is used in tree nursery field. It is useful for mulching and weed management.

Non-Woven Jute Felts are also used in construction of roads & laying of railway tracks to strengthen the subsoil, keeping it from moving or slipping away. On sites such as riverbanks & slopes. Jute based products are also extensively used for protection & stabilization.

Usage – Horticulture, weed controlling, plant frost cover, tree trunk wrap, animal cover, inner insulation. seat/sofa liner, shoe liner, floor insulator, and decorations.
