coir in Alappuzha (Alleppey) and Kerala, India
Alappuzha is well known for the natural and eco friendly fiber coir.
Coir or coconut fibre, is a natural fibre extracted from the husk of coconut and used in products such as floor mats, doormats, brushes and mattresses.
Coir is the fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut. Other uses of brown coir (made from ripe coconut) are in upholstery padding, sacking and horticulture. White coir, harvested from unripe coconuts, is used for making finer brushes, string, rope and fishing nets.
The whole world is looking up to the eco-friendliness of coir products.
