And the winner is…. “Mom a Far”! I promise, there was no cheating 🙂

I like being on this side of a guessing game. Hum, since Bangladesh is a major textile exporter… and given the other guesses… I am going to guess rolls of Jute?”

Yes JUTE it is.

And this is a Jute field:

From Wikipedia:

“Jute is a long, soft, shiny vegetable fiber that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. (…) Jute is one of the most affordable natural fibers and it is second only to cotton in amount produced and variety of uses of vegetable fibers. Jute fibers are composed primarily of the plant materials cellulose and lignin. It falls into the bast fiber category (fiber collected from bast, the phloem of the plant, sometimes called the “skin”) along with kenaf, industrial hemp, flax (linen), ramie, etc. The industrial term for jute fiber is raw jute. The fibers are off-white to brown, and 1–4 metres (3–13 feet) long. Jute is also called the golden fiber for its color and high cash value.
(…)

For centuries, jute has been an integral part of the culture of East Bengal and some parts of West Bengal, precisely in the southwest of Bangladesh.”
