Traditional Coir Handloom Mats

Coconut fibre, otherwise known as the Golden Fibre is extracted from the outer husk of the coconut fruit. Coconut husks are scientifically bundled to large formations and are immersed in predetermined locations in Saline or fresh water for 8-10 months. This process is called Retting. The retted husks are then taken out of the water and beaten with a wooden mallet to extract the fibre from the decomposed husk. Of late, this process is also mechanized to a large extent. The fine golden fibre thus extracted is spun on traditional as well as mechanized ‘Ratts’ to make yarns. Coir Mats are made on handlooms, power looms or frames and with or without brush. Creel Mats are known for its thin brush. Rod Mats for thick brush and Fibre Mats for compact brush. Latex/rubber backing makes the mats non-slip. Available with woven or stencilled designs and bevelled patterns for use in interior or exterior door fronts.
