English Willow Urns

The willow is a deciduous shrub found primarily on moist soil in cold and temperate regions of the Northern hemisphere.  English willow are particularly evocative of the English landscape from Ratty and Badger roaming on the river, to the thwack of leather on willow and the sound of the English summer.

English Willow has been grown on the Somerset Levels for centuries and has the unique ability to regenerate repeatedly from the same crown for 30 to 40 years. The colour variations are achieved naturally by boiling and stripping the bark.

100% Biodegradable

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.
