Return to Sender - manufacturer and designer of eco-friendly coffins, caskets and urns, Products - archetype rimu

By: Return To Sender  05-Apr-2012

The Archetype is manufactured using certified sustainably harvested North Island rimu which is not treated in any way and contains no added chemicals. The Archetype design is traditional with notable enhancements. The handles are integrated so metal or plastic handles are not required. The interior is a feature and does not need to be hidden with fabric. The finishing touch is the wool fleece mattress which complements the wood grain. The lid is fixed by wooden keys (supplied) and can be clipped to the sides when open. The timber has a fine finish and is coated with oil. See LE103 for a variation of this model with alternative handles.

Return to Sender - manufacturer and designer of eco-friendly coffins, caskets and urns, Products - artisan

Many people are attracted to the woodgrain and wool fleece, environmentalists have chosen it for the minimal use of materials and eco-iconic appearance and others have chosen it just to express individuality. The Artisan's unique design encourages celebration of life rather than mourning death and is particularly suited to those who refused a life of grey conformity.
