The golden-brown banana coffins are made from flexible but strong banana cord, which is woven around a natural cane and light rattan framework, thus giving the whole product even more stability. The round ended coffins have a rustic but at the same time a gentle and surprisingly soft appearance.

The versatile Banana plant is best known for its edible fruits and is often mistaken for a tree, as their main stem can reach a height of up to 8 metres. They are in fact the world’s largest known herb, and the stem is not made of wood, but tightly coiled leaves. The large and waterproof leaves of the banana also have many uses: Fresh leaves are often used to wrap food or as plates. The dried leaves can also be used for their medical purposes. In order to use it as a building material the stem is being harvested after the banana plant has produced its crop, then dried, cut again into strings which are then twisted into a cord. The outer part of the stem gives a browner cord, the inner part a lighter one. The flexible cord is woven around a natural cane and rattan framework, thus giving the whole product stability.

We want to make the selection and buying process of an Eco friendly Coffin as easy as possible and we understand that not everyone will be aware of some of the key information for buying a coffin or what information that you need to consider before placing an order.

Coffin / Casket Size 

We recommend that the internal dimensions are at least the height plus 2” (50mm) and the width of the shoulders plus 2” (50mm) of the deceased, if you need help with size conversion click here to go our conversion guide.

Nameplates

We supply Two standard Bamboo blank name plates with every coffin, but we also offer other options (see the Nameplate tab for more details and pictures). 

Engraving

You can either have the name plates engraved by us (using Engraving lines 1,2 & 3 when you order) or you can arrange for this to be done yourself or by your Funeral Director).

How strong are the coffins?

All of our coffins are weight tested to carry 150 kg or 23 stone and can be reinforced further if necessary.

Can the Coffins be used for a cremation?

All of the coffins we sell are suitable for burial or cremation and are supplied with solid flat bases with finger grips and load bearing handles. They have all been tested specifically for cremation by Marchwood Scientific Services Ltd. in accordance with the Coffin and Casket testing protocol as laid out by the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturers Association.

If you are purchasing and cardboard coffin for a cremation please check with you Funeral director if they require a Plywood base, all of our standard cardboard coffins come with a Cremation base, but we have seen a few funeral homes who require the base to be plywood.

What’s the difference between a coffin and a casket?

A coffin is wider at the shoulders than it is at the head or foot, while a casket is rectangular in shape, with straight sides between head and foot.
