The "European" - "White" (peeled) willow
FTP Eco-Coffins, LTD. from the UK has been commissioning handmade woven coffins from around the world for a number of years, selling thousands to the British public for both natural burial and clean cremation. The "white" color of the willow comes when young willow is harvested and peeled. It's a labor-intensive process that makes the coffin a lovely golden straw color.
This biodegradable coffin has sturdy woven willow handles for carrying. It comes with a heavy-duty calico cotton hemmed sheet liner, somewhat like a shroud, that wraps the body and provides leak-resistance and modesty. The coffins use classic willow-pole closures through loops. Each coffin has woven flower rings for the placement of bouquets. These coffins are do not have any finish applied.
Handmade coffins of natural materials vary slightly in color and appearance. FLOWERS NOT INCLUDED
