Cutie Jutie was born out of a love of fashion and practicality.
We are 2 women who wanted to support the environment & subsequent cessation of plastic bag use, without having to compromise on style.
Our bags are designed to minimise the impact of plastic waste on the planet, and still looking fabulous!
We hope you love our sustainable bags as much as we do.

How are we different from other Sustainable Jute bag companies?
Cutie Jutie jute shopping bags are printed digitally, not by traditional jute textile printing methods. This means we can use any digital print we want. Traditionally, Jute bags are printed by screen with a general limit of 4 colours, using toxic chemical dyes which result in environmental waste product.
Digital printing creates less waste product, meaning there is no water waste or noxious chemicals released into our atmosphere. Digital printing offers an efficient and environmentally friendly option of applying the colours and patterns we choose for our jute shopping bags. As at 2018, 40 billion litres of water were saved worldwide by printing digitally on textiles. That alone is worth the investment!
When the idea came about to create a solution for single use plastic shopping bags and keep our Fash-on it didn’t take long to decide on the best natural fabric.
Its pretty amazing as far as natural fibre goes - it breathes, is sustainable, dries quickly and isn’t expensive! That’s probably too much excitement for a plant vegetable, but it isn’t known as the ‘Golden Fibre’ for nothing!
Jute does not re quire chemical pesticides in order to grow and thrive (that alone is a good reason to invest in a Cutie Jutie bag!), it uses less water than Cotton crops and replenishes within 4-6 months.
Jute would have to be one of the most ecological materials on Earth.
