Burlap is a fibrous, open weave fabric with great texture and natural quality that appeals to everyone. And best of all, burlap is durable and easy on the wallet. It can fit in with a lot of DIY decorating and design looks including coastal/beachy, rustic, country, vintage and it can even be chic and modern. Burlap has a strong odor, which is kinda gasoline. You can get rid of this odor by airing the burlap outside for a couple of days and that usually brings down the odor level to something that is tolerable. Burlap isn’t just for potato snacks anymore. Use your creativity to come up with wonderful burlap decorations in your own home. Check out the link for an easy tutorial on DIY burlap storage boxes.
