The ARKA Acorn Urn is intended to contain ashes after cremation. Produced to UK regulation size - 10" high x 8" wide - it's considered a large urn, adequate for most remains, with a 220CM volume.
The Acorn Urn is manufactured out of biodegradable recycled fibers. It's hand worked and sanded smooth in the ARKA workshop in Brighton, UK, and then overlaid in recycled mulberry leaf paper dyed with natural colors. Once buried, the natural fibers will decompose rapidly, becoming part of the earth again.
The Urn comes in multiple colors: Moss Green, Russet Red, Stone Blue, White, and Gold are stocked in the US. Additional colors are available.
Plant the urn about 2 feet deep in the earth, and at least 3 feet away from the large roots of any small bushes or young trees. The alkaline "ash" of the burned bones, mostly calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate (sterilized bonemeal) then returns slowly to the soil and will be used by the surrounding soil web.
