Our woven coffins have all been approved under the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturer’s Association (FFMA) Coffin Certification Scheme. They have all been certified for weight bearing up to 190.5kg (29½ stone). They have natural handles, six in total, each of which are certified to bear 50kg. There is an integrated base of solid plywood, with recessed fastenings, making them secure and equally suitable for burial or cremation. All of these woven coffins have natural, unbleached calico linings and all fastenings are of natural materials – making them 100% biodegradable.
Our woollen coffins are made in Yorkshire using pure new wool, supported on a strong recycled cardboard frame. Wool is a fibre with a true green lineage that is both sustainable and biodegradable. The interior is generously lined with organic cotton and attractively edged with jute, with an embroidered woollen nameplate.
These high quality cardboard coffins are manufactured from corrugated cardboard, which is strong and sturdy while remaining lightweight and easy to manage. They have all been certified for weight bearing up to 165 kg (26 stone). They have been developed for consumers wishing to have an alternative to the traditional wooden coffin styles.
