Burlap is a material that is made out of the bast family of fibers. Bast fibers represent a family of vegetable fibers which run the length of the plant stem. They are found in the inner bark of plants. The texture of burlap comes from the fact that it is made from the skin of the jute plant - one of the least expensive textile crops in the world, and one of the strongest.
