Carrying leafcocoonThe Leafcocoon complete coffin consists of a soft woollen shroud, enfolded in layers of wool felt, supported by a sturdy wood and felt base with strong carrying handles.

Wool is the only fibre grown in the UK for commercial use and my wool is locally sourced in the UK. No shipping tankers and no mega-ports are involved in it’s making.
