Coffins & Caskets

  • Cane is very environmentally friendly due to the fact that it is very fast growing. Cane grows in degraded forests and grows in marginal soil or areas where other land products cannot grow, an example are areas that remain flooded for long periods of time. In addition, Cane clings to existing tropical rain forest trees and so actively encourages the preservation of trees in the rain forest. Our Cane coffins are available in either the Traditional shape (square ends) or Curved shape (rounded ends) each comes fitted with a cotton lining and pillow.
  • Cocostick coffins are made from the stems of the coconut palm leaf, which are fast growing by-products of the coconut tree. The coconut palm leaves are dried out and the stems are removed, leaving tiny sticks. These sticks are then strung together to create the Cocostick’s desirable colour combination. Our Cocostick coffins are available in either the Traditional shape (square ends) or Curved shape (rounded ends) each comes fitted with a cotton lining and pillow.
  • The Seagrass material in our Seagrass Coffins is renowned for its quality and durability, which makes it an ideal material for woven products. As their name implies Seagrass is indeed a grass and sea water does play a part in production. Our Seagrass is grown in paddy fields and at a certain point during the growing season, the fields are flooded with sea water. It is highly renewable and comes from environments where sustainability practices are employed. Our Seagrass coffins are available in either the Traditional shape (square ends) or Curved shape (rounded ends) each comes fitted with a cotton lining and pillow.
  • The natural Bamboo Coffins we provide have been meticulously handcrafted using fine strips of dried bamboo. Bamboo is one the fastest growing plants on Earth and has been known to grow to a meter within a day. This makes Bamboo a highly renewable material, matching the sustainability requirements for our range.
  • Our Banana Leaf coffins are made from the leaves of the banana plant. The leaves of the banana plant are carefully removed and spun into long yarns and are then woven around a natural Rattan frame making them substantial, lightweight and golden coloured in appearance. Banana Leaves are fast growing, freely available and 100% natural and biodegradable. Our Banana Leaf coffins are available in either the Traditional shape (square ends) or Curved shape (rounded ends) each comes fitted with a cotton lining and pillow.
  • Our Loom coffins are made from natural paper which has been spun into long yarns and woven around a substantial Rattan frame. The Loom coffins are light brown in appearance with cream coloured cane implemented into the design and are fastened closed with plaited loops and toggles. Each coffin is available in the curved shape (rounded end) and is fitted with a cotton lining and pillow.
