    Used to have a reliable supplier of proper grey coir matting but the last 2 have been shocking, dye running etc so wondered if anyone has a decent source of the Grey coir?

    Most are pushing this 'Brown' coir as grey.
    Even kersaint Cobb who used to supply a nice grey that has turned into brown now :rolleyes:

    Actually looks a decent supplier. My go to wholesaler only doing natural and cfs probably don’t know what colour it’s going to be

    Coir does not take dye well. Whichever colour you buy, it will fade back to natural in time and with use. The best brand I have known is Fitswell.

    Yep tried these and theirs is brown instead of grey as well.
    Was using flooringUK the last few times but the latest batch is crap.
    Garrards own has turned to pooh as well :rolleyes:

    I agree but the ones I've been using have been great for a couple year before they start to look to the point of renewing

    I agree. There seems to be a general reduction in quality.

    Ahh. It probably all comes from the same place. What about Bruce stark?
