The Willow Pod is handcrafted from sustainable Willow using traditional methods and has a unique shape. Following a traditional coffin shaped footprint, the sides of the base taper out slightly and the coffin is topped with a highly sculpted curved lid. The willow is woven onto a self-supporting frame, which gives the coffins exceptional strength whilst at the same time remaining incredibly light, they come in two different colours (light and natural). Willow is a deciduous tree found primarily on moist soil in cold and temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Willow is a renewable, annually harvested crop and a highly sustainable material for coffins, compared to solid hardwood trees which can take thirty to sixty years to reach maturity. The Willow Pod coffins are manufactured in the EU using cottage industry methods, in which people work in their own homes and use their own equipment to create these products using European Willow.

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.

 Delivery
