Locally sourced willow coffins
Woven Farewell Coffins, based in Devon, source all of their willow locally from Somerset and Dorset. Their beautiful coffins are double lined with biodegradable plastic and unbleached cotton, and organic hemp rope is used for the handles. The sturdy base slats are made from locally grown and milled timber. There are no resins or plastics involved in production and so the coffins don't release harmful gases into the atmosphere during cremation, or leach into the ground on being buried.
Willow coffins are a wonderfully eco friendly option as the materials only take a year to grow, are fully compostable, and are suitable for a burial in a natural burial ground.
For further information, do get in touch with Sophia at Woven Farewell Coffins she will be more than happy to help you.
