More about our natural coffin designs

Natural coffins – ethical, biodegradable and handmade in the UK

We use the long horse shoe shape for all our natural wicker coffin designs, because we believe that the beauty of a good wicker casket, is to recognise the natural shape of the body and character of the deceased.
