Fairtrade Willow Urns

  • Specifically designed for burial

A wonderfully crafted environmentally-friendly and fairtrade cremation urn, we have seen a number of woven designs, we think they are excellent.
Made from willow it comes with a thick cotton bag for the ashes. There are three designs, all in natural weave;
Bluebell (Round Casket 7″ in height by 7″ wide) ,
Crocus (Oval Casket 6″ in height by 9″ wide) or
Fern (Rounded square Casket 6″ in height by 8″ wide).
These urns are ideal for burial at a formal grave site or green burial.
Capacity: approx 3 litres suitable for one set of adult ashes

The willow urns are hand made by a co-operative of cottage industries in Poland. The willow is a deciduous shrub found primarily on moist soil in cold and temperate regions of the Northern hemisphere. Almost all European willows take root very readily from cuttings or even where broken branches lie on the ground.

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.
