Jute is another bast fiber similar to flax, ramie, bamboo, and kenaf.  It is processed using a similar method - retting to rot away the unuseful parts of the plant, then drying and processing.  It is an important historical fiber commonly produced in monsoon climates such as Bangladesh.  It used to be used for coffee sacks, sandbags during World War 1 and for rope and cording.  The fibers can be 3 to 13 feet long!
