Coir


Coir is made from the strong fibres of the coconut husk found in the province of Kerala, India. The coconuts grow around the many inland lakes and waterways. The husks are soaked in water ponds for several months before the fibres are extracted and spun. Coir is recommended for heavy domestic and medium contract situations and can be installed throughout the entire house.Coir is full of natural character. Coir is both durable and good value. It is available in the colours natural to bleached. All carpets are equipped with a latex backing.

Like many other type of natural fibre flooring coir has hydroscopic properties, ie. it absorbs moisture from the air and therefore helps to balance the atmosphere of a room, taking in and releasing moisture depending on the conditions.

Because coir does not harbour bacteria, it seems to be particularly good for asthmatic or allergic conditions. Most of all, for those seeking an environmentally-responsible choice for their flooring, coir is 100% biodegradable. Its natural fibres are processed in an ecologically-sound manner and are free of pollutants. It is therefore a completely sustainable resource.
