Coconut fibre, obtained from unripe coconut, is a natural fibre extracted from the husk of the coconut. The coconut is steeped in hot seawater, and subsequently, the fibers are removed from the shell by combing and crushing, the same process as jute fibre. The individual fibre cells are narrow and hollow with thick walls made of cellulose, and each cell is about 1 mm long and 10–20 μm in diameter, as shown in Fig. 2.6. The raw coconut fibres show length varying from 15 to 35 cm and diameter from 50 to 300 μm. When they are immature and then become hardened and yellowed because a layer of lignin is deposited on their walls. Coconut fibre shows a good stiffness and is used in products such as floor mats, doormats, brushes, mattresses, coarse filling material, and upholstery .
