Alleppey, the Coir Capital of India

Alleppey, the Coir Capital of India

An enchanting ride through the inviting backwaters of Alleppey is not sole attraction of this land. As sun turns everything in to ember shades, fisher women sing symphonies while turning the bundles tied on to their waists, into twisted thin coir ropes.

Coir industry is about 200 years old and blooms in the coastal hamlets of the country, Alleppey in Kerala in particular.
