A VISIT TO THE COIR MUSEUM

Coir was first woven in Kerala - who knew?

When I was travelling in India earlier this month I visited the International Coir Museum near Allepey in Kerala and learned all about how coir fibres are extracted from coconut husks to be woven in to mats/ rugs/ carpets and all manner of other fibrous goodies. Did you know you can even make coir wood?? Fascinating!
