Willow Coffins

Hand Woven with care from sustainable natural willow

Willow coffins, beautifully woven by hand from natural, sustainable willow.

Each of our wicker willow coffins is unique and we take great pride and care in making sure each one is perfect. All our coffins have gone through vigorous testing to make sure you, and your funeral director, can have complete peace of mind.

Completely biodegradable and suitable for burial or cremation, they are a softer, gentler alternative to more traditional coffins.

Our willow coffins are available in a wide range of sizes and all are certified by the F.F.M.A.

How are willow coffins made?

Also known as wicker coffins, or basket coffins, they are beautifully handcrafted from woven willow using traditional methods and using only sustainable natural materials.

Willow is a fast-growing wood, making it an environmentally friendly material for coffins. Crafted using traditional skills by skilled weavers, they are woven on a frame to either a traditional coffin shape or our own signature “teardrop” shape which has lovely curving lines.

The base of our coffins has been designed for strength and stability and has integrated support built-in between two layers of base. All fixings are recessed to prevent snagging when moving or sliding the coffin and there are no metal parts. The handles are fully tested for weight-bearing and there are recessed fingerholds for added security. This unique base construction gives confidence when moving, lifting and carrying.

How strong is a willow coffin?

Our willow coffins have undergone rigorous 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.

You can read more about the rigorous testing protocol our coffins have passed on the F.F.M.A. website
