Imported:

Bamboo lattice coffin

Traditional coffin, constructed of two layers of woven bamboo

£335.00

Banana leaf coffin

Hand woven on a strong wooden frame

£335.00

 

Bamboo coffin

Meticulously handmade using fine strips of dried bamboo. The bamboo weave is interlaced to form an attractive wicker mat that is then woven around a strong natural frame. Bamboo is one the fastest growing plants on Earth and has been known to grow to one metre within a day. The coffins are available in two differing shapes, curved end (rounded) and traditional shape (square) each tapering from end to end. Both styles come in a range of finished sizes with natural rope handles and fully fitted with natural linings, pillow and covers.

£395.00

Banana leaf coffin

Attractive yarns of golden leaf from the banana plant are twisted and woven into two dexterous shapes to form this soft and comforting range. Being the by-product of banana farming, the leaf of the banana plant is in plentiful supply and is readily available for weaving. The leaves would otherwise be disposed of making this natural cycle renewable and good for the local environment. The coffins are available in two differing shapes, curved end (rounded) and traditional shape (square) each tapering from end to end. Both styles come in a range of finished sizes with natural rope handles and fully fitted with natural linings, pillow and covers.

£395.00

Cane coffin

Handcrafted using woven cane, sometimes referred to as a wicker or rattan, our Cane Coffins hold an off-white appearance and are skillfully finished by hand using traditional basket making techniques. The rattan used for our coffins is harvested from the forests of South East Asia where rattan clings and grows up the existing forest trees like a vine. Rattan has been known to grow as much as six metres in a year making it a great renewable material.
The coffins are available in two differing shapes, curved end (rounded) and traditional shape (square) each tapering from end to end. Both styles come in a range of finished sizes with natural rope handles and fully fitted with natural linings, pillow and covers.

£395.00

Cocostick coffin

The Cocostick coffin is made from the stem of the coconut palm leaf, which is a fast growing by-product of the coconut tree. The coconut palm leaves are dried out, stems removed, leaving tiny sticks. These sticks are then strung together to create our Cocostick coffins cultural and desirable colour combination. The coffin is available in the traditional shape (square) tapering from end to end and available in a range of finished sizes with natural rope handles and fully fitted with natural linings, pillow and covers.

£395.00

Loom coffin

Loom coffins are made from natural paper which has been spun into long yarns and woven around a substantial cane frame. The Loom coffins are light brown in appearance with cream coloured cane implemented into the design and fastened closed with plaited loops and toggles. The coffin is available in the curved end shape (rounded) tapering from end to end and available in a range of finished sizes with natural rope handles and fully fitted with natural linings, pillow and covers.

£395.00

Seagrass coffin

Seagrass Coffins are a beautiful compliment, rustic and natural with subtle green and blue tones. They are woven by hand using yarns of twisted seagrass and finished with cane, top and bottom. The seagrass material used for our coffins is grown in coastal paddy fields and flooded with seawater throughout the year. The fields are carefully managed to promote a continued cycle of growth and renewability.
The coffins are available in two differing shapes, curved end (rounded) and traditional shape (square) each tapering from end to end. Both styles come in a range of finished sizes with natural rope handles and fully fitted with natural linings, pillow and covers.

£395.00

Willow coffin

Willow Coffins have a slightly pink and golden look, they are hand worked by traditional basket weavers using age old methods that have changed very little in over 2000 years. Willow is by far the ultimate in environmental recycling, willow is grown in rows of bushes and once harvested can generate back to the same height within a year. Willow has been known to grow up to 3 metres tall annually and has the ability to degrade much more quickly than conventional hardwood.
The coffins are available in two differing shapes, curved end (rounded) and traditional shape (square) each tapering from end to end. Both styles come in a range of finished sizes with natural rope handles and fully fitted with natural linings, pillow and covers.
