English Willow Coffins
Hand woven with care in Somerset
Tributes’ English willow coffins are beautifully handwoven using traditional skills that have been handed down through generations of skilled craftspeople.
Each of our English willow coffins is unique and we take great pride and care in making sure each one is perfect. All our coffins have passed extensive tests to ensure you, and your funeral director, can have complete peace of mind.
Our English willow coffins are available in a range of sizes and all are certified by the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturers’ Association, the F.F.M.A.
They are beautifully handcrafted from willow grown in the beautiful Somerset levels. They are made with traditional methods, using only natural materials with no metal or plastic parts.
A softer, gentler alternative to more traditional coffins, they are perfect for those who value British craftsmanship. They are completely biodegradable and equally suitable for burial or cremation. As they are made in the UK, they have a lower carbon footprint than similar woven coffins making them a more environmentally friendly coffin.
How strong is an English willow coffin?
Our English willow coffins have undergone extensive strength testing by the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturers’ Association (F.F.M.A.) and are certified by them. They feature an integrated double base of solid plywood, with recessed fastenings, making them strong, secure and equally suitable for burial or cremation. Our willow coffins have been successfully tested for weight-bearing, using their natural rope and seagrass handles, up to 150kg.
