plays a major role in the everyday life of Keralites. Along with the
fruit and the water from coconut, which is used as a refreshing drink to
beat the heat, Keralites also use the roots, the trunk, and the leaf of
coconut for varying purposes. Thus, the socio-cultural economic
activities of the state almost remain incomplete without this fruit.
undulating coconut palms make Kerala one of the most leading
manufacturers of Coconut Coir Fibre and its allied products. Coconut cor fibre or the
Golden Fibre is first extracted from the hard outer husks of the fruit.
These husks are then carefully bundled and then dipped in either saline
water or fresh water. The bundles are immersed across various locations
for almost a period of 8 to 10 months. This is the Retting process.
husks after being taken from the water are thrashed with a wooden
mallet. This helps in extracting the fibre and separating it from the
decomposed husk. Instead of using manual labor, many manufacturers also
prefer mechanized process for husk extraction today.
golden fibre extracted through the process is then spun on either
traditional or mechanized 'Ratts'. Thus begins the yarn making process.
Many different grades of yarn can be made via this process, viz.,
Vycomme, Anjengo, Aratory, etc. The difference in the yarn quality
depends on the specific color, thickness, hardness, texture, length of
the fibre, etc.
