Harmony Wicker Seagrass Coffin
The Harmony Wicker Seagrass Coffin is a toned with natural dyes along with the natural color variation of seagrass and willow weave. It is a more modern oval shape design with rope handles, calico liners & moisture proof membrane.
Willow is a highly sustainable product.
Willow grows from February to July and in the right conditions it can grow inches per day.
Willow plants are grown sustainably being very easy to harvest and requiring no fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides. The plants can replenish fertility in degraded and marginal soils and also provide habitat for birds and insects.
They also act as windbreaks, stabilise soil and can combat river and coastal erosion. It also provides badly needed seasonal income for families in farming communities.
Willow coffins are among the most environmentally friendly coffins available. We believe that our coffins are the ultimate in environmental recycling as willow is a highly renewable crop harvested each year which involves minimal processing.
It can degrade rapidly in the soil and helps to lock carbon emissions into its willow stems.
Willow is a carbon neutral material and when burnt only gives off the same amount of carbon that it consumes within it’s lifetime.
All of our Willow Caskets are completely natural and biodegradable. They break down in 6 months to 2 years depending on soil conditions. Willow coffins are woven and therefore do not depend on toxic glues, varnish, plastics, or metals.
Their colours are the natural plant dyes in the pigmentation. This means that colour tone may vary from batch to batch.
Seagrass is made into rope and woven throughout our coffins and caskets, creating a natural beauty to this product. This seagrass is not harvested from our endangered marine environment, but cultivated in a similar way to the willow and grown in similar conditions to rice. In paddy fields that seasonally flood to provide the perfect environment for farmers to commercially grow this sustainable product.
Each casket and coffin comes fully lined with a pillow, base, blanket and cover from calico. This is 100% natural unbleached cotton.
