The "Garden" and the "Sea Garden" - Woven cane or Cane and Seagrass
Each one of these Rattan-Style wicker coffins has been carefully hand crafted by skilled basket weavers, making each one a unique and personal tribute to a loved one. The "Gardens" come with either curved ends or in the traditional coffin shape. Using a flat-wrapped rattan technique, each is constructed upon a strong cane frame and has a fitted lid, secure fastening poles, and strong natural fibre rope handles. The cane has a creamy off-white apperance and is naturally handcrafted using traditional methods. In the "Sea Garden", plaited seagrass is woven into the cane. It comes with a natural fitted cotton liner. VIEW GALLERY FOR STYLES
ABOUT CANE - The fast-growing cane (up to 6 metres a year) grows in degraded forests and in marginal soil, in areas where other land products cannot grow, as in areas that remain flooded for long periods of time. Cane clings to exisiting tropical rainforest trees and its cultivation and harvest actively encourages the preservation of trees in the rainforest. It can be introduced artificially in natural forests without disturbing the existing natural eco-system. It provides income to some of the poorest people living in and on the fringes of the rainforests.
Handmade coffins of natural materials vary slightly in color and appearance. FLOWERS NOT INCLUDED
