What is Coir?
Coir is the main component of our natural bed rugs and derives from coconut husks. When the coconut is mature, the fibrous layer is harvested. Hot water is used to sterilize and soften the fibers, making them more pliable. These fibers are then spun into yarn or rope and made into coir sheets.
The rug also contains natural latex which helps hold the fibers together, ensuring stability.
Why We Love It
Coir is the perfect material for our bed rug because its porous structure promotes air circulation, a key necessity for natural latex.
If your bed does not meet our latex mattress warranty requirements due to lack of airflow with closely spaced slats (or no slats at all), then we recommend purchasing a bed rug to ensure the latex in your mattress can breathe.
