Natural, Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Door Mats
Coir is a renewable resource that can be harvested without harming the environment. Coconut palms grow in tropical regions around the world, and the fruit they produce can be harvested year-round. The extraction of coir fibres from the husks also does not require the use of any harmful chemicals or pesticides and the coconuts can be harvested without harming the tree, making it a natural and sustainable process.
Coir mats are made using a traditional process that has been utilised for many centuries. Coconut husks are soaked in water to soften them and then beaten to separate the natural fibres. These naturally strong, water-resistant and abrasive fibres are then used to create our coir matting.
Coir mats are a durable and long-lasting option, which means they will last for years of service without needing to be replaced. This reduces the amount of waste generated and the environmental impact of production and transportation.
Caring for your coir mat
Coir mats, otherwise known as coconut mats, are a beautiful and practical addition to any entranceway, either in your home or within a commercial property. But, to keep your coir mat in great condition and to help prolong its life, it is important to follow three basic care tips.
1. Shake it – Although a fairly obvious tip, shaking out or vacuuming your coir mat every now and then, really does help, not only in making it look better, but also as a way of freeing up the fibres to improve the performance of the mat.
2. Wash it – Over time and with constant use, natural coir mats will need washing, but before putting your coir mat into the washing machine check that it’s machine washable - coir mats are naturally ultra-absorbent and can get damaged if saturated.
For a non-machine-washable coir mat, the best way to clean it is by using a dry foam or powder cleaner, similar to the type you might use on your carpet. Avoid strong detergents or solvents, as these tend to weaken the natural fibres which may result in pile-loss.
3. Brush it – Using a stiff broom or brush is a highly effective way to clean your coir mat, just make sure the mud or other dirt is left to dry, otherwise brushing will simply force the dirt deeper into the fibres.

What makes coir matting so efficient?
Coir is a naturally occurring material derived from a coconut husk. Assuming you’ve held a coconut, you’ll be aware of its naturally coarse fibres. In nature, this hardwearing husk creates a uniquely abrasive protection for the coconut, which is difficult to recreate synthetically.
Mat makers throughout the centuries realised the fibres of the coconut husk or coir fibres, were the same as the woody fibres of the hardier plant varieties. This quality meant the coir didn’t rot, and when woven into a mat had the perfect shape, absorbency and rigidity to aid and sustain regular and vigorous foot wiping.
A environmentally friendly choice
Because they’re manufactured from a pure, natural source, coir door mats are one of the best choices for customers looking for an environmentally friendly and sustainable option.
