Hard wearing and durable, coir flooring is becoming an increasingly popular choice for homes and businesses across the UK. Also known as coconut flooring, coir flooring is produced from the husk of a coconut and is hand spun to create an extremely durable and sustainable flooring material. Coir is also low maintenance, strong and durable, ideal for high traffic areas. At Knotistry we offer a handpicked selection of the finest coir carpets, runners and rugs and we can introduce you to an approved fitter. Our coir rugs and carpets are offered at extremely competitive prices, with up to 60% off RRP.
Coir is a fibre made from the husk of a coconut. Coir flooring is tightly hand spun and has a unique, natural texture and tone that can’t be recreated with synthetic materials.
Coir is extremely resistant to wear and tear, making it particularly suitable for the following areas:
Commercial areas – such as retail stores
Coir flooring is particularly tough, meaning it is not as soft underfoot as some other natural flooring types.
Benefits of coir flooring
Coir flooring has a range of very unique properties which brings benefits to homeowners:
Durable and strong
Coir is a tough fibre and therefore coir carpets, rugs and runners can withstand a good amount of wear and tear. In fact, it is so well suited to heavy usage that its bristles are often used to make doormats.
Coir flooring is relatively low maintenance. It is fairly water-resistant, meaning spillages are easy to clean up. The natural oils found in coir carpets and rugs repel insects, meaning you’re less likely to find yourself with a moth problem.
Coir is not only 100% biodegradable, it is produced by hand making it more environmentally friendly than mass-made synthetic flooring materials.
Originating from coconuts, coir is also a renewable resource and can be made from coconuts at any stage of the tree’s maturity.
Our network of NCIF-approved fitters will ensure that your coir flooring is installed to the highest standards, which will help with durability and maintenance. As an online only store, we are able to offer some of the most competitive prices for coir flooring in the UK, with discounts often up to 60%.
