Coir Fibre is extracted from coconut husk. Husk contains 1/3 fibre and 2/3 coir pith. We are extracting coir fibre from various mechanical methods, like combing and beating.
The coir fiber is relatively water-proof and is one of the few natural fibers resistant to damage by salt water. There are two varieties of coir.
Brown coir is harvested from fully ripened coconuts. It is thick, strong and has high abrasion resistance. It is typically used in mats, brushes and sacking.
Mature brown coir fibers contain more lignin and less cellulose than fibers such as flax and cotton, Fresh water is used to process brown coir
White coir fibers are harvested from the coconuts before they are ripe. These fibers are white or light brown in color and are smoother and finer, but also weaker.
They are generally spun to make yarn that is used in mats or rope .Both sea water and fresh water are used in the production of white coir.
