    Default Coir mat for camping ?

    Looking for the " good old coir mats " , the hand knotted ones that last !

    Had one at my last house, 30 years and a dog slept on it nightly and it was perfect.

    Got a new rubber backed one this year and already the rubber is in bits and pieces - no dog either.......

    Any ideas ?

    I havent seen coir carpeting for ages Duncan but mats are quite common. Is it a quality issue these days? I suppose they use modern backing materials like you mentioned and if that goes so too does the mat

    Wonder if there are still weavers in Natal or Swazi ?
