Geotextiles with natural fibres like coir, jute, sisal, hemp etc are used in Civil Engineering applications. Mainly they are used for erosion control applications. The main advantage of geotextiles with natural fibres is that they are ecofriendly and biodegradable. They can be successfully used in limited life applications of geotechnical engineering. This paper deals with an overview of various case studies and model studies conducted by the author on the various uses of coir geotextiles. It also gives an overview on the potential uses of coir geotextiles in various civil engineering applications.
