Dorset willow weaver, Cath Pratley and myself, have collaborated to create a practical and ecological solution for cremation.
• Sturdy willow base
• 6 strong felt covered handles
• Waterproof paper and felt liner
• Wool felt shroud
• Woollen pillow
• Plain felt cover (can also be ordered separately for other coffins). Decoration can be added at extra charge. The price quoted here is for a plain cover. Please email for an estimate.
“Our funeral director was really impressed with the interior – head rest, foot rest and internal cocoon. We loved the comfy handles and everything was very high quality. … We chose the Willow & Wool coffin not just because it is more environmentally responsible, but also because it seems less imposing than a hard wood or completely wicker option. … it gave us comfort to wrap our loved one in soft layers. One of our friends described it as humble, dignified and beautiful” J. Ireson. April 2018
We combine the comforting softness of wool with the practicality of willow for cremation. Following the ancient law and practice of burial in wool, this is an ecological alternative to the hard-edged imports. Materials are grown and processed in England and we make everything by hand and use natural dyes.
Please check with your crematorium for suitability before ordering.
