Wicker coffins also have a variety of shapes of handles. Some coffins can even have a band of a bright colour. Some also have slightly curvy shape like the eco pod coffin below.

 They have become popular again lately but are by no means a new idea. In the late 19th century Sir Frances Haden developed wicker coffins. His design had no lid and was to be filled with flowers or earth for natural burial.

They are made from willow, which is a truly environmentally renewable resource. The willow plant grows up to 8ft in height and can be harvested annually from the same crown for up to 60 years.

Some of these beautiful wicker coffins are hand crafted by co-operative of cottage industries in Poland. Some are woven in Somerset.

Wicker basket coffins can look even lovelier with the addition of flowers. Because they are woven it is easy to attach flowers to a willow coffin. As well as the flower arrangement on the top of the coffin often a garland can be attached around the coffin and individual posies too. More information on how to decorate a willow coffin.

Wicker coffins can be supplied in any colour. Or with a coloured band. Below are a rainbow willow coffin and a solid purple coffin.

Our Wicker coffins are FFMA or CCSA approved for quality and we can provide certification. All our eco-coffins are suitable for traditional or green burial or cremation.
