A wonderfully crafted environmentally-friendly and fairtrade cremation urn,  we think they are excellent.
Made from bamboo it comes with a thick cotton bag for the ashes.
There are three designs, all in natural weave;
Laurel (Round Casket 8″ in height by 7″ wide),
Glade (Rectangular Casket 6″ in height by 8″ wide by 10″ in length)
Aspen (Bell shaped Casket 8″ in height by 7″ wide).
This urn will hold the ashes  of one person it is ideal for burial at a formal grave site or green burial.
Capacity approx 3 litres.

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet, growing up to a metre per day. The Chinese have a saying that the only way to control its spread is to eat the shoots. Bamboo is also incredibly strong, with a tensile strength greater that that of steel. There is a 300 metre long suspension bridge in South China which hangs from bamboo cables fastened over a canyon; it does not have a single metal nail, screw or bolt in its construction. Panda bears do not eat the species of bamboo which are used to make these products, so the production does not in any way affect this endangered species.

These beautiful urns are specifically designed for burial, you can feel totally reassured that by placing your loved one’s ashes into the urn and then burying it, it will start to naturally biodegrade allowing the gentle release of ashes back into the soil.
