Fibre extracted from the outer layer of the coconut is known as coir fibre. It is used to manufacture various artistic and other useful products. Sri Lankan coconut coir and coir-based product manufacturers have been known well for centuries.

The production of coir and associated products has flourished in the Southern coastal belt and in the districts of Kurunegala and Puttalam. Coir products are exported and used to make carpets, doormats and decorative items. Coir products can be found in every village market place since they are effective, inexpensive and highly utilitarian.

Meanwhile Galle district has long been one of the country’s principle coir producing and processing area with around 20-30 coir mills ranging from large exporting firms to household producing and processing coir. Some have fully mechanized, but many units at cottage and household levels still operate with traditional producing methods or immediate technologies at best.
