Choosing a coffin is a very distressing task, and our staff are trained to deal sensitively with this aspect of arranging a funeral.
We now offer Natural Woven Products as part of our range of coffins.
Sometimes family members or friends feel a need to place letters or photographs in the coffin. Care has to be excercised when placing other items in a coffin, as certain objects may cause problems at the crematorium.
The Natural Woven Range
Natural Wicker Coffins & Caskets
Each one of our environmentally friendly Seagrass, Cocostick and Loom coffins has been intricately hand woven by skilled basket makers making each coffin unique, special and a personal tribute to a loved one.
Our Seagrass material is renowned for its quality and durability, which makes it an idealmaterial for woven products. As their name implies Seagrass is indeed a grass and sea water does play a part in production. Our Seagrass is grown in Indonesia and at a certain point during the growing season, the fields are flooded with sea water. It is highly renewable and comes from environments where sustainability practices are employed. Once harvested Seagrass is dried and then spun into a strong yarn ready for weaving.
Our loom coffins are made from natural paper which is spun into long yarns and woven around a tohiti frame. They have an off brown colour with cream coloured cane implemented into the design. The loom coffins are available in the Curved end shape and come with a natural fitted cotton liner.
