Coir Processing in the Past and Present
Coir has always been made by hand, initially by climbing coconut trees and then by gathering them from the ground. A bamboo pole with a knife connected to it proved to be the most effective method for palm climbers, who could harvest fruit from 250 trees each day. As recently as 1894, coir was a more coveted commodity than the coconut’s nectar. Coconuts picked before they were ready to be processed into coir account for a significant portion of the total. Coconuts should be husked and immersed for a year to remove the coir from the shell, which necessitates harvesting the coir after 10 months after harvesting (known as retting). A variety of salt or fresh water was used to soak coconut husks, depending on what was available. Stronger coir was developed by soaking in salt water. Although the results were mixed, one pound of yarn was claimed to be produced from coir after it was further processed by rolling the fibers from 3 to 10 nuts, depending on their size. In 1950, mechanical processing was introduced as a result of industrialization, and now, advanced husking machines can handle up to 200 coconuts per hour.
