The open weave and rough touch will let you know that this is the real deal, 100% jute burlap. But it isn't just any burlap; it's Black Sultana Burlap. With a tighter weave and hefty 11 ounces per yard, it's slightly less rough than your average burlap and a bit heavier. It's a great choice for decorating and crafts, due to the relative softness.

Perfect for occasions and events, this Black Sultana Burlap would make a great table covering, especially if you use it to showcase a colorful feast! It can accent centerpieces or make lovely chair coverings. It's also wonderful for décor accents, gardening uses, and craft projects. Let your imagination run wild!
