Hessian is a rough, plain weave fabric made from jute fibres, generally left undyed. It is also known, in the USA and Canada, as burlap. The name is linked to the German principality of Hesse, and to the uniforms of its soldiers. Hessian cloth was first exported from India in the early nineteenth century.
