It's usually impossible to say for certain from a pic, so I'll stick my neck out and say I'm about 95% sure it's not, it looks a lot like like jute scrim.

Try setting fire to it, just with a match or a ciggy lighter and have a method of extinguishing it on hand, and definitely don't leave any smouldering.

Just be aware most asbestos fibres are invisible to the naked eye.
