Coffins - Natural
Made from the leaves of a prolific wild plant (nicknamed wild pineapple) which grows rapidly in the watery environments of Southeast Asia and cultivated as a highly renewable and sustainable material. The leaves are dried and then spun into long yarns which are then woven and coiled around a natural cane framework. Rattan is also woven into the design to create a striking contrast against the leaf yarn's silvery appearance. Manufactured in Indonesia in a World Fair Trade Organization accredited workshop.
Available in a rounded or traditional shape.
Banana cord is made using the dried woven leaves of the banana, an annual plant, after the plant has produced its fruit and died back each year. Rattan is also woven into the coffin to create a striking contrast with the banana cords' burnt golden appearance. Banana plants are often mistaken for trees as their main stem can reach a height of up to 8m but they are in fact the world's largest known herb. Made in a World Fair Trade Organisation accredited workshop.
