A selection of seagrass, willow and wool woven coffins with all natural fibres and natural liners. Other selections are available, please discuss with your arranger.
Silver Dove Funerals offers a wide range of eco-friendly options. Below are just some of our range of Hand Woven & Wool coffins that we have available. Eco-Friendly caskets are a beautiful and natural solution to a difficult problem. We understand that in recent times, people are wanting to say “farewell” in a more environmentally friendly, alternative way and we have embraced this. Our eco range has been hand selected by Silver Dove Funerals> in order to provide you with an environmentally alternative farewell.
Willow is a carbon neutral material that only gives off the same amount of carbon that it consumes within it’s lifetime. All of our Willow Caskets are completely natural and biodegradable. They break down in 6 months to 2 years depending on soil conditions. Willow coffins are woven and therefore do not depend on toxic glues, varnish, plastics, or metals.
