Coconut fibre is very tough yet also elastic. Coir is a product that is naturally adapted to the human body. The fibre is collected from the coconut husk, a resource that is widely available and hardly deteriorates at all over time. Coconut palms grow on 10 million of hectares of land throughout the tropics. Only a fraction of the huge quantities of nuts are collected for industrial use. The food industry is the main consumer, and it focuses on the coconut meat. The fibres are only a by-product, but ENKEV gives these valuable raw materials a new purpose in life.
