Jute, known as "golden thread" in Bangladesh, is the first raw material for Motherhouse. On our 15th Anniversary, we have taken the challenge to develop new Jute fabric. By offering a simplistic backpack shape with plain knitting pattern from our lightweight jute, we expect to bring possibilities of this new sensation.
Materials X Weaving
The beauty of "Sarari Jute" lies in its beautiful woven patterns.
The thinnest Motherhouse Jute is woven with cotton to create the classic "herringbone" design.
Style X Lightweight
Our soft and smooth hemp makes it lighter on your back.
With this simplistic square backpack, we maximize the beauty of our woven Jute pattern.
The History of Our Jute bags
The history of Motherhouse began when our CEO and Chief Designer, Eriko Yamaguchi,
encountered Jute while she was studying in Bangladesh.
For the next 15 years,
we have continuously challenged ourselves to develop various Jute products to help realize its full potential.
Jute X Cotton
At the beginning, we experimented by mixing Jute with cotton. Doing so allowed us to increase the durability of our bags and produce them in a variety of colors.

What is Jute?
Jute is known as "golden thread" in Bangladesh.
It is a natural fiber extracted from the stems of plants grown in tropical and subtropical zones and has been used for handicrafts in Bengal since ancient times.
It is an eco-friendly material and has a natural, enjoyable texture.
