From coconuts to coir doormat
Collect fallen ripe coconuts. Climbers harvest coconuts from 40-100 ft trees. Coconut-husking Coconuts are de-husked with a spike. A experienced husker can husk 2,000 coconuts day. Machines crush apples to extract fibers. 2,000 coconuts/hour can be processed. The husk is immersed in water (freshwater or saltwater, depending on the husk) to promote microbial growth. Bacteria eat soft coconut, leaving uncooked coir. Raw coir includes coconut dust and valuable fibers. This filler is removed or utilized as mulch for coir matting.
Retting 6-10 months. Mechanical techniques may reduce retting. Retted husks may be crushed after 7-10 days. Dry-milling unretted immature husks.

Human labor has been replaced with flat-beater motorized machinery. A slower-rotating drum separates fibers by length. Short fibers can’t be made into mats, thus they’re mattress padding.
