Willow Coffins

The Willow coffins are beautifully handwoven by skilled craftsmen with long family histories in willow weaving, using traditional methods and great attention to detail. The English Willow has been grown on the Somerset levels for centuries and as it regenerates easily once harvested, it has become a popular sustainable choice. The European Willow coffins are manufactured in the EU using cottage industry methods, in which people work in their own homes to create these products, which are handcrafted from sustainable willow. The willow is woven onto a self-supporting frame and colours are achieved by using natural methods of drying, boiling or stripping of the willow bark.
