What is coir?
Coir is a strong natural material. It's made by separating the fibres from the outer husk that surrounds the coconut. The remainder of the coconut is used for food and fuel, among other things. Coir fibres are coarse, stiff and water resistant, which makes coir rugs very durable and suitable as doormats. Bleached coir may return to its natural colour if exposed to too much sunlight.
