For thousands of years, natural fibres have been at the core of the textile industry. From cloth, to paper and building materials, natural fibres were always the base material. Natural fibres originate from either plant fibres, such as jute, cotton and hemp, or animal fibres such as sheep, camel, yak and goat. As a completely renewable resource, natural fibres provide many benefits both to the environment and to those involved in the market that they create.
