Decorating with Burlap

Hello everybody!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Today I want to show you some decoration with a fabric that I´m really into it.
"The Burlap"

A little bit of it´s history
I'm sure we're all familiar with this type of fabric, but maybe not with the name,
so I'm sure when you see it in the picture I am going to show you, you will know
perfectly what I am talking about.

I want to explain a little of it´s history first, because I always find interesting knowing
some facts about the things I have between my hands.

Hessian or burlap ( In the US and Canada) is a woven fabric usually made from
skin of the jute plant or sisal fibres.
Hessian is often used to make sacks and bags to ship goods like coffee beans.
It´s very durable, it also protects the goods from getting wet, and it´s also used in the
construction industry.
Nowadays is being used for decoration accessories too.

Examples of using burlap for decoration
Small tablecloths made with this fabric.
They are very original and handy.
Table runner for a day time event.
The detail of picking it up at the end with 
a small loop is very original.
In this case is also being used for a day time event, but instead of decorating
the tables, it´s decorating the guests chairs.
This table runner might not be as elegant as the other one, but it looks pretty
for an informal lunch or dinner.
