Geo Textile Key word: Woven & Nonwoven Geotextiles, Jute & Coir Geotextiles, Civil Engineering Textiles, Filter Fabrics & Geotextiles
Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect or drain. As the use of geo textile fabrics has expanded there has been the introduction of geotextile composites and the development of products such as geogrids and meshes. Overall these materials are referred to as geosynthetics and each configuration - geonets, geogrids and others - can yield certain benefits in geo technical and environmental engineering design. Geo-textiles have a wide range of applications and are currently used to advantage in many civil engineering applications including roads, airfields, railroads, embankments, retaining structures, reservoirs, canals, dams, bank protection and coastal engineering.
In the specific context of civil engineering, geotextiles refer to the woven or nonwoven fabrics used with foundations, soils, rock, earth, or other geotechnical material as an integral part of a manufactured project, structure, or system. Also known as civil engineering fabrics; erosion control cloth; filter fabrics; support membranes.

Coir Geo Textiles such as Coco Beds & Coco Logs - its products are made from natural fibres like coir, jute, sisal, cotton, sea grass, flax, paper and hemp.
Geotextiles from Wikipedia: Overall these materials are referred to as geo synthetics and each configuration - geonets, geogrids and others - can yield certain benefits in geo technical and environmental engineering design. Know more from the Wikipedia article.
Investigation on Application of Coir Reinforcement in Geotechnical Engineering, from Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Madras: Geotextiles made of coir are ideally suited for low-cost applications. These geo textiles can be applied in the construction of unpaved roads where they can effectively serve the purposes of reinforcement, separation, filtration and drainage.

Fiber 2 Fashion section on Textiles Related to Earth - In the past Geo textiles were made of natural plant fibers while today are usually formed of synthetic polymers such as polyester, polypropylene (PP), polyamides (PA) and polyamides (PA). Geo textiles made from natural fibers are less durable as they get decomposed with passage of time. Know more from this page.
