Coir Mats

Coir is a fiber derived from the husks of coconuts, specifically the coconut palm, which has been used in India for centuries for a number of uses. The natural color of coir is brown to reddish brown but it can be dyed to make bold, colorful, and graphic patterns. With their loose texture and ability to dry quickly, coir mats are nice accents around the pool, in an entrance hall, or as colorful doormats.
