About Coir Mats

Coir or Coconut fibre is the original hard wearing material chosen for years to make long lasting doormats for businesses and homes alike. It gives a traditional appearance, and is very long lasting too.

Coir is extremely effective at removing dirt, helping to protect your investment in your internal floor coverings. A traditional woven coir mat is ideal for use inside or out as any water is able to pass through the mat allowing it to dry out.

A traditional hand stitched mat at the entrance to your building is the perfect finishing touch and is particularly suited to period properties.
