Coloured Coffins

A coloured coffin can reflect the personality of your loved one

Choosing a bespoke coloured coffin for your loved one can reflect their tastes and personality and make your final farewell more personal.

Any colour you can imagine can be replicated when you choose a Tributes woven coffin. Pastel lemon yellow or bright bubblegum pink, dazzling aqua or restful sage – the colour choice is completely up to you. Our coloured coffins are painted rather than dyed, so they can be as colourful, bold and striking as you wish.

Our painted coffins are available in a wide range of sizes, including baby and child sizes, and all are certified by the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturers’ Association, the F.F.M.A.

How can I choose a coloured coffin?

You can choose a coloured coffin by request from your funeral director. We only need a colour reference or paint swatch and these are readily available from paint retailers. Choosing the colour yourself can ensure that the finished result is as close as possible to what you have envisaged.

Which woven coffins are suitable for painting?

Our wicker willow coffins can all be painted in any colour. We always paint a base coat to ensure consistent coverage and that colour representation is as close as possible.

Can I get a black coffin? (or any other colour)

We’re often asked if there are any colours that cannot be used for painting coffins and the answer is no, there are no restrictions on the colour you choose. If there is a paint for the colour you have in mind, we can create a colourful coffin to match. We have painted coffins in purple, fuchsia pink, emerald green, black, charcoal grey and many others – even to match the colours of the deceased’s favourite football team.

Can I choose a coffin with more than one colour?

Yes, we are able to paint a coffin in more than one colour in some cases. The best results are where there are clear blocks or bands of colour. Ask your funeral director to speak to us if you have something creative or unusual in mind for your coffin and we’ll try to help.

Can I choose an ashes casket to match a coloured coffin?

You can order a woven ashes casket to match the coloured coffin you have chosen. Request this at the time you arrange the coffin with your funeral director, especially if it is an unusual colour, to ensure a consistent colour match.

Why choose a coloured coffin from Tributes?

We take great care in preparing all our coffins and, when a coffin is to be painted, extra time and attention are given to ensuring that the colour is consistent and there is good coverage of the natural woven materials. Our coloured coffins are painted rather than dyed, so the colour can be as bold and striking as you wish. Our spray team take great pride in the beautiful results they have achieved and the many families they have helped to have the perfect coffin for their loved ones.

Our coffins are available in a wide range of sizes and all are certified by the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturers’ Association (F.F.M.A.)

Beautifully handcrafted using traditional methods and using only natural materials they are painted to order by our skilled team in our Sussex workshop. The lids have attractive edge detail and are securely fastened by toggles.
