Coir is full of natural character. It is made from the strong fibres of the coconut husk found in Kerala, India. The natural fibres are removed by hand and softened in sea water, so that they can be woven into a selection of designs. Coir is both durable and good value. It is available in a spectrum of golden shades from natural to bleached.
Jute gives a tweedy look and is soft underfoot. It comes from the stalk of the giant corchorus plants, grown in southern India. The natural fibres are fine, making Jute more suitable to relaxing rooms rather than heavily used areas. It is naturally light brown in colour and come in a tight boucle and herringbone designs.’
