We love the unique, woven jute front of this media cabinet. Made of long, soft, shiny vegetable fiber that is spun into coarse, strong threads, jute is ideal for crafting into furniture and decor. It has been used for thousands of years to create textiles, first appearing in the Indus valley civilization in the 3rd millennium BC (3000-2001 BC). In the past few centuries, this material rose in popularity in Bangladesh and Britain. The industry boomed throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, and today, jute is an important export crop around the world, mainly in Bangladesh.
