Coconut fibre is very tough yet also elastic, and hardly deteriorates at all over time. 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. Coconut palms grow on 10 million of hectares of land throughout the tropics, with only a fraction of these huge quantities of nuts collected kept for industrial use. The food industry is the main consumer, and it focuses on the coconut meat, with the fibres being only a by-product. ENKEV gives these valuable raw materials a new purpose in life.
