TRADITIONAL WILLOW COFFINS
CURVED WILLOW COFFINS
You can be sure you will receive nothing less than exceptional craftsmanship. Every coffin is finished with our company badge, symbolising the quality and heritage of all our willow coffins.
Our natural buff willow finish ranges from a dark orange hue to a chestnut-brown appearance. The colouration comes from the willow being boiled for over eight hours before being stripped ready for use. Willow is a coppice material and grows naturally from a crown, the crowns are arranged in rows which are harvested annually.
Weatherbeaten Gold is our signature finish. The willow has a golden hue which holds a subtle weathered appearance. For Weatherbeaten Gold we keep back the lightest harvest willow, we then boil for over 8 hours before stripping and treating to produce this unique colour.
If you like you can select colours of hand-dyed willow to be carefully woven into distinctive bands around the top and bottom of your coffin, in addition you can also have matching handles. The dye used in our colouring process is a natural fabric dye derived from natural salts and colouring agents.
Tailor made Eco-Coffins
Every Process is Important
The willow we grow integrates with its surrounding land exceptionally well, providing a natural habitat for many species of wetland birds and animals. When grown as a short rotation coppice, our willow has a much higher water consumption than agricultural crops. In flood-affected areas, this helps to take the pressure off the natural landscape. In addition, willow is used as a natural engineering solution to tackle a range of conditions such as; biofiltration, constructed wetlands, ecological wastewater treatment, hedges, land reclamation, bioengineering, slope stabilisation and soil erosion control.
