What are Wicker Caskets and Wicker Coffins Made From?
Wicker coffins and caskets, also known as willow coffins or caskets, have been used for centuries in various cultures around the world. The exact origins of wicker coffins are not clear, but they are believed to have originated in Europe during the Victorian era.
Wicker is a type of weaving process that was traditionally used to create a variety of furniture and decorative items, including baskets, chairs, tables, and our beautiful and unique wicker caskets or coffins. It involves weaving natural materials such as rattan, willow, bamboo, or reed into a particular pattern to create a sturdy and durable structure.
Wicker coffins were originally made from willow, which was a readily available and sustainable material in Europe at the time. They were typically woven by hand, using traditional basket weaving techniques, and were often adorned with simple decorative elements such as ribbon or flowers.
Wicker casket or coffin weaving involves wrapping the weaving material around the frame of the coffin or casket, which can be made of wood or bamboo. The weaving material is then woven over and under each other in a particular pattern until the desired shape is achieved. The resulting product is lightweight, sturdy and durable. All our products comply with Australian Standards. All products are tested and certified by an independent Australian ISO/IEC17025 testing laboratory. This ensures our customers receive affordable prices without compromising on quality.
In recent years, wicker coffins and caskets have experienced a resurgence in popularity as people have become more interested and educated in eco-friendly burial options. Today, wicker coffins are often made from a variety of natural materials, including willow, bamboo, rattan, banana leaves, and seagrass, and are available in a wide range of styles, shapes and designs. The materials used to make wicker coffins and caskets are easy to harvest and are highly renewable and sustainable. Some materials like banana leaves and pineapple fibres or pandanus are byproducts.
Wicker coffins are known for their natural beauty and environmentally friendly properties, as they are biodegradable and do not have the same environmental impact as traditional coffins made from timbers that are not alway renewable or compressed particle board MDF with glues and chemicals added, metal or synthetic materials. They are a popular choice for people who want to have a natural or “green” burial, and are often used in conjunction with other eco-friendly burial practices such as natural burial grounds and conservation burial sites.
Wicker is often associated with a rustic or natural aesthetic, and can be used to create a variety of styles, from traditional to modern caskets or coffins. It is a versatile material that can be painted, dyed or stained. A combination of materials like banana leaves, bamboo, and rattan can be used in the weaving process. This creates a truly beautiful and unique coffin or casket, that is eco friendly, using sustainable natural fibres.
