Coir is a coarse fiber extracted from the fibrous outer shell of a coconut.
About Coconut Fiber: Coconut fiber is extracted from the husk of coconuts, which is typically comprised of bristle fiber (10%), mattress fiber (20%) and coir dust and waste (70%). It is the fibrous material pulled out and found between the internal shell and outer coat of a coconut. Coconut fiber makes durable material for string, rope, brushes, doormats, carpets, yarn fishing nets, and mattresses. Another advantage of coconut fiber, aside from it being natural, is its relatively waterproof characteristic and resistance to saltwater damage.
