Description

A wonderfully crafted environmentally-friendly and fairtrade cremation urn, we have seen a number of woven designs, but won’t stock any other make, we think they are excellent. Made from banana leaves* it comes with a thick cotton bag for the ashes.
There are three designs, all in natural weave;
Primrose (Round Casket 8″ in height by 7″ wide)
Buttercup (Square Casket 8″ in height by 8″ wide)
Sunflower (Bell Shaped Casket 8″ in height by 7″ wide).
This urn is ideal for burial at a formal grave site or green burial.
Capacity: approx 3 litres suitable for one set of adult ashes

* The banana, believed to have originated from the jungles of Asia, is generally mistaken for a tree, but is actually the world’s largest herb. Their main stem can reach a height of up to 8 metres, though it is not actually formed of wood, but the tightly coiled leaves of the plant. The banana caskets are made using these dried leaves after the tree has produced its fruit and the stem is cut back each year.
