Bahia coconut shells make for some exotic surface coverings. EKOBE of Brazil manufactures the eco-friendly, environmentally sustainable tiles in a variety of colors and finishes.
The coconut tiles can be used on everything from floors to doors to create a tropical feel within a room. The effect would be perfect for a sunroom or spa, adding natural texture and leaving you with a Brazilian beach-like impression.
