Nau (pronounce Now) a sustainable company located in Portland, is using the coconut husk (Coir) material in their jacket. Great!!!!
Not only the Coconut husk (Coir) have being recycled and using for making finer brushes, string, rope, fishing nets, packaging and also to design Floor but now they are Upcycling it into fine materials as well. VERY COOL.
Being from the Caribbean, we have plenty of coconut trees, (love to eat the coconut flesh inside and drink the coconut water, it was so good and refreshing).
Memories, great times I do much miss quite a lot. Also, things I do remember seeing people do with the coconut palm, the fiber, the hard shell growing up in Haiti was unbelievable. I would have never guess that one day it will be used inside of a jacket. So little did I know then.
A little info about Coir/ Coconut fiber:
