Product Description


Welcome Coir Mat

Coir or Coco Mats are constructed from genuine coco fibers, also called coir fibers. Coir (pronounced "coy-er") is a popular choice for entry mats and rugs due to its extreme durability and toughness in high-traffic areas. An anti-skid surface keeps them in place. Coir comes from the thick middle layer of coconuts (called mesocarp). Harvesting of coir is based in rural India and Sri Lanka. The state of Kerala, also known as the “land of coconuts”, is the largest producer of coir in India, yielding more than 75% of the total production.

The preparation of coir fibers is a painstaking process. Younger coconuts (rumata) are preferred for harvesting coir, as unripe fruits contain the longest, strongest fibers. It takes approximately 100 coconuts to produce 18 pounds of fibers. Husks (called purus) are separated from coconut shells and soaked in briny lagoon water for periods of up to 10 months, a process called retting. Usually, a shallow hole is scooped out at the bottom of knee-deep water, where the husk sections (called akanga) are buried beneath sand. The purpose of retting is to separate the fiber from the corky material (called pith). The husks are beaten with wooden mallets to loosen the pale yellow fibers and convert them into a silky, fine material. (Fibers range from 4-12 inches long.) The beating process is called ta ti tukaha. The beaten fibers are dried in the sun, and are then either spun by hand or on spinning wheels called RATTS. The spinning process transforms the fibers into a smooth, yarn-like material. Spun coir is often dyed to a desired shade. (Its natural color ranges from golden- to reddish-brown.)

  • The thick, short fibers of coir are quick-drying and weather-resistant, absorbing moisture without mildew
  • The fibers are 100% organic and biodegradable
  • The dyed yarn is hand-woven into mats and backed with ribbed rubber to keep them in place
