The making of coir is a traditional means of livelihood practice popular in Kerala villages. Being 100 per cent organic and natural fibre Kerala coir has high demand all over the world. 

Popularly known as the golden fibre of Kerala, coir is made with coconut fibre extracted from coconut husks. Rope, twine, brooms and brushes, doormats, rugs, mattresses etc are some products made out of coir. 

Coir products are eco-friendly and sustainable. Kerala is the home of the Indian coir industry, particularly white fibre, accounting for 61 per cent of coconut production and over 85 per cent of coir products. Around 50 per cent of the available coir husk is used to produce coir products.
