About Coconut Fiber
Coconut fiber or coir comes from a completely natural, sustainable and renewable resource. The husk of the coconut is discarded when the nut is harvested; we recycle the husk to make high quality, value-added products. Coconut fiber is clean and free from contaminates, it ships compressed and is lightweight for easy handling. Used coconut fiber is recyclable biodegradable; it can be used as fuel or as a soil conditioner.
Coconut fiber has high lignin content and thus low cellulose content, as a result of which it is resilient, strong and highly durable. The remarkable lightness of the fibers is due to the cavities arising from the dried out sieve cells.
Coconut fiber is the only fruit fiber usable in the textile industry.
Coconut fiber stands apart from other natural fibers in several ways:
• It is the thickest, stiffest and most resilient of all commercial natural fibers.
• Its cellular structure makes it weaker and more elastic than other natural fibers.
• The cell walls of fiber and pith contain more lignin than any other commercially relevant natural fiber, including wood. Lignin is a natural polymer, which adds strength and elasticity to the cellulose-based fiber walls.
