The double refined coir bought for twisting.
Coir is initially dried in drying machine.
The dried coir is initially twisted roughly in an automated yarn spinning machine.
The finely processed coir is being twisted.
The twisted coir is gathered in a container.
The closer view of coir being roped.
Roughly twisted rope.
The rope is again finely twisted using another rope twisting machine.
The over-view of final twisting.
The view of twines being twisted.
Keen observation is required to continue the twisting.
The twisted rope is finally reeled to big spools.
Hiriyur is located 40 km away from the Chitradurga district in Karnataka state. Hiriyur is one of the major producer of coconuts due to good climatic conditions and abundant availability of Vedavati river water. Coir is the natural fiber which is extracted from coconut. The fiber which is extracted from coconut husk is processed in automated machines to remove the fiber.
The coir is refined and spinned using modern automated machines. In this process, the cleaned coir is dried and it is taken to the spinning machine. The coir are continuously fed into the fiber tray, the coir automatically twisted and rolled in a container which is placed at the other end of the machine. This roughly spinned coir is again fed into the ply-yarn spinning machine. The final twisting of coir is done by the two spools which are attached to the machine. These automated machines are run by single operator.
