Conventionally grown cotton uses more pesticides than any other agricultural crop. We only sell certified organic cotton.
Our 100% organic unbleached cotton shrouds are the Natural Burial Company's simplest natural burial option. Handmade in Oregon, each regular-sized shroud has approximately 5+ yards of 60" wide fabric and provides ample material for a full body wrap. All shrouds are double-hemmed for a clean, finished look. Three handsewn cotton straps tie the shroud into place. Instructions included.
Sizing: A 5+ yard shroud will provide double wrapping for persons of average height. Taller persons can have single wrap OR purchase additional lengths. Extra-long adds 30" of length. Extra-wide shroud adds 30" of width.
ORGANIC COTTON SHROUD CHOICES:
ORGANIC CHAMBRAY SHROUD --This tight-weave 5oz organic cotton fabric is an opaque Muslin that has some body to it. The fabric is produced by organic farmers in India who specialize in organic foods but are adding organic cotton to their crop list.
ORGANIC FLANNEL SHROUD:
DIY SEW YOUR OWN - ORGANIC FABRIC ONLY:
For dignified and easier transport to the crematory and for easy placement into the grave, we recommend using the shroud with an all-wooden lowering unit like our SHROUDING BOARD(TM), easily stored in a flat-packed cardboard carton about the size of a closet door.
