There are very few people in the world who don’t enjoy a glass of wine as a gift, so people often pick up gift bags to go with their chosen bottle of red or white. It used to be that those bags were invariably made from thick paper, and that’s still a fantastic option. However, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t look to other materials, including jute.
A long vegetable fibre that can be woven to create bags, jute is becoming an increasingly popular material, and we think it’s a particularly good choice when you’re looking for a bag in which to carry wine. Here are just a few reasons why.
Jute Bags Are Strong
If you drop your bottle of wine, you’re probably only going to end up with broken glass. As such, any bag used to carry wine needs to be quite strong, and jute is ideal in this regard. These eco-friendly fibres are very tough, so you’ll be able to carry wine in a jute bag all day without ever worrying about the bottom falling through.
Jute Bags Last a Long Time
Jute is often used instead of paper when bags need to last for a long time. In fact, jute is more akin to cotton or canvas. If you’re going to use or give someone a wine bag, why not give them one that will last a long time? You can use jute bags every weekend during the summer if you go on picnics, then you can shove it in a cupboard until the next time you need it.
Jute Bags Are Stylish
It might be a newer bagging material, but jute has a very rustic appearance that people tend to like. It still looks upscale and exotic, but it also brings a touch of vintage charm that nicely complements a bottle of wine. You can leave the wine in the bag while it rests on the table and never think it looks out of place.
