The Somerset Range - Willow
Our Willow Coffin has a slightly pink and golden look, they are hand worked by traditional basket weavers using old methods that have changed very little over 2000 years. Willow is by far the ultimate in environmental recycling grown in rows of bushes and once harvested can grow back to the same height within 12 months.
Coco Stick Coffins (Special order)
This 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 Coco Stick coffins.
Our Seagrass Coffin 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 used for this coffin 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.
