Coconut fiber or coir is natural fiber taken from by product of coconut husk then cleaned and compressed into bales. Coconut fiber belongs to the category fibers/fibrous materials, Coconut fiber is obtained from the fibrous husk (mesocarp) of the coconut (Cocos nucifera) from the coconut palm, which belongs to the palm family (Palmae). Coconut fibers have 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. Coir is obtained by retting for up to 10 months in water followed by sun-drying. Once dry, the fiber is graded into "bristle" fiber (combed, approx. 20 - 40 cm long) and "mattress" fiber (random fibers, approx. 2 - 10 cm long).

Coconut Fiber Bale Coconut fiber is transported in bales (compressed and uncompressed), in hanks and in rolls. The fibers are sometimes wrapped in jute or bamboo mats or are also shipped unpackaged. Steel strapping and coir cordage are used to ensure that packages hold together better.
