Fibre, also known as Mexican fibre or Tampico, terms a natural fibre with yellow colouring. The fibres are extracted out of the Mexican agave and come out with the length of 30 to 50 cm.
Because of its resistance against high temperatures, acid and lye, a good elasticity and optimal water absorption, Fibre is preferred for many kinds of brushes in the household like scrubbing brushes or bath brushes.
Today Fibre can be replaced with synthetic fibres in some cases.
We offer Mexican Fibre in diverse lengths and colours.
Arenga fibres are made from the sugar palm, which grows in Indonesia. The fibres are coloured from dark grey to black, differ in their thickness and are up to 1,20 meters long. They are water- and oil resistant. Compared to other natural fibres, the Arenga-fibre is smooth and elastic.
We can offer Arenga-fibres in diverse lengths.
The coconut fibres can be found in the shells of coconuts, which grow in Sri Lanka. After the coconuts have been soaked in water for a few months, the fibres can be taken from the shells. They are from 15 to 30 cm long, have a brown colour and practical characteristics like elasticity and resistance against humidity. They are used for mats, ropes, brushes and in the garden as fertilizer.

You can find Bassine fibres in East India. They come from the Palmyra-palm and have a brown colour. They are very strong and water resistant, which is the reason why they are mainly used for street brushes or brushes in the household.
Bassine is often mixed with Mexican Fibre and sold as Unino-fibre.
We offer Bassine fibres in different lengths and in your individual mixture.

Rice root, also known as Broom root, is the root of the Zacaton plant, a special type of grass, which grows on the high plateaus of Mexico.

It is an elastic and water resistant material, which is often used for vegetable brushes, scrubbers and brooms.
